Irish Rugby at Intersport Elverys

2019 was a mixed year for Irish Rugby. The Rugby World Cup journey came to a premature ending against the mighty All Blacks at the Quarter Final stage, in which was ultimately Joe Schmidt’s final game, after years of unparalleled success. We’ve not doubt Andy Farrell will build on this success.

The Sevens teams are going from strength to strength, with both teams now on the World Rugby Series stage, which can only be a good thing going forward for the game. As title sponsors of both the men’s and women’s team sevens teams, Intersport Elverys are delighted to see this progress and long may it continue.

Over the course of 2019, Intersport Elverys got the chance to make some great videos with the Irish Rugby players and management. Check some of them out below.

The Rugby Year Ahead

With rugby behind us for 2019, all roads lead to 2020 and there is so much to look forward to. Connacht Rugby are having somewhat of a resurgent campaign back in the European Champions Cup, the Irish rugby team are beginning to rebuild under the guidance of Andy Farrell and have their sights set on the 6 nations and the Summer tour, while the Irish Rugby 7’s teams are also improving all the time and both are competing in the World Rugby Series. 2020 is shaping up to be a cracker!

Connacht Rugby

The year 2019 has been a very good one for Connacht rugby and as Official Title Sponsors, everyone here at Intersport Elverys are delighted to see. A fantastic run in the PRO14 last year seen the team qualify for the Champions Cup, where they have been very competitive. Some fantastic club form also seen Bundee Aki and Jack Carty travel to Japan with the Irish Rugby team to take part in the Rugby World Cup. 2019 also seen hugely exciting plans to redevelop the Sports Grounds in Galway, which breaths fresh optimism for the future. Here at Intersport Elverys we have a wide range of Connacht Rugby gear, something for all the family. Take a look in-store or online HERE.

Irish Rugby

2019 was a mixed year for Irish Rugby. The Rugby World Cup journey came to a premature ending against the mighty All Blacks at the Quarter Final stage, in which was ultimately Joe Schmidt’s final game, after years of unparalleled success. We’ve not doubt Andy Farrell will build on this success. He has already named his training squad for 2020, and he will no doubt be looking to implement his style on this team during the Six Nations and the Summer Tour in Australia as he builds for the future. Check out our great Irish Rugby range in-store or online HERE.

Sevens Rugby

The Sevens teams are going from strength to strength, with both teams now on the World Rugby Series stage, which can only be a good thing going forward for the game. As title sponsors of both the men’s and women’s team sevens teams, Intersport Elverys are delighted to see this progress and long may it continue. The men’s team will also have one last chance to qualify for the 2020 Olympics, when they take part in a qualifying tournament during the Summer.

World Rugby

The year after a World Cup is usually a year of rebuilding and building for the future. The All Blacks will be looking to the future under the stewardship of new head coach Ian Foster and will have one eye on the 2023 World Cup. After capturing their 3rd World Cup, South Africa will be happy enough to keep their process going and build on their success under former Munster man Rassie Erasmus and prepare for the Visit of the British and Irish Lions in 2021. Australia will be preparing for the visit of Ireland during the summer, which could be a cracking series. At Intersport Elverys, we’ve a fantastic range of rugby jerseys from all over the World. Check then out HERE.

A Look Ahead To The 2020 GAA Season

It’s hard to believe, but the 2020 GAA season is upon us. 2019 is behind us (apart from the All Ireland Club Championships) and all GAA supporters are dreaming of what might happen in the year ahead. League, Provincial and All Ireland glory could be on the horizon…or that’s the hope anyway.

Here at Intersport Elverys we’re part of the GAA fabric and are partnered with counties Mayo, Tipperary, Dublin, Sligo, Galway, Clare, Limerick, Kerry, Kildare, Kilkenny and Waterford, so we’re really excited to see what the new season brings. We will take a closer look at some of the counties.

Mayo

As title sponsors of Mayo GAA, we were delighted to see the men’s senior team capture their first national title since 2001, after beating Kerry in the National League final and reaching the All Ireland semi final, as did the ladies team. They will both be hoping to go two steps further in 2020 and capture the All Ireland titles. We have a massive range of Mayo GAA gear available in-store and online including the Mayo LGFA jersey. 2020 could be a big year for the Mayo footballers, hurlers and ladies teams.

Dublin

2019 was the first year that Intersport Elverys were the official retail partners of Dublin GAA and what a year it was for Dublin, with the men’s team capturing the 5 in a row and the ladies completing the 3 in a row. The men’s manager Jim Gavin has now stepped away and Dublin legend Dessie Farrell has stepped into the hot seat looking to drive the Dubs to 6 in a row. The men’s hurling and ladies camogie teams are ever improving and will be hoping for good summers. Here at Intersport Elverys we have a full range of Dublin jerseys to choose from, including the home LGFA and Camogie jerseys as well as the Dublin alternate jersey. Get ready for the season of GAA ahead and shop all Dublin GAA HERE. #TheNextChapter

Here at Intersport Elverys we have the Tipperary jersey in all sizes to suit your family. Shop all Tipperary GAA HERE.

Limerick

Here at Intersport Elverys we’re also official retail partners of Limerick GAA. The Limerick hurlers are the current Munster and National league champions and will be hoping to reclaim the Liam McCarthy after losing to Kilkenny in the All Ireland semi final. The footballers lost out heavily to Cork in the Munster semi final and will be hoping for a better Championship tilt this year. Limerick have a unique jersey in that they have no sponsor present on them. Get both jerseys at Intersport Elverys now, as well as a full training range.
