Proudly invested in Irish sport

Intersport Elverys have a steadfast tradition in backing sport at all levels, from grass roots events and organisations to elite teams and athletes. In addition to Intersport Elverys’ title sponsorship of Connacht Rugby, Ireland Rugby Sevens and Mayo GAA, also being retail partner to the IRFU and numerous GAA County Boards, the brand is one of the biggest supporters of Irish sport.

On the running spectrum, the brand recently teamed up with Athletics Ireland in their efforts to get Ireland running and we are on a journey to get more people running, running more and running with others.

While we love to see success on the pitch with national league wins, qualifications and top table finishes, sport is ultimately about effort and performing at our best. We back ambition.

This Summer follow our story and that of our teams – in particular the Ireland Rugby 7s men’s and women’s teams as they face qualification for the 2020 Olympics. The championship will be heating up with several of our GAA County Board retail partners expected to go a long way. This includes the likes of Dublin, Galway, Limerick, Tipperary, Mayo in the Football and Hurling Championships. On from that we look at the biggest spectacle of the year being our official retail partner Irish Rugby’s  World Cup campaign, where the boys in green hope to make an serious impact on the World stage.

It is going to be an exciting summer of sport and we’re proud to be apart of it! Check out all things sport HERE.



Get, Set. Run! Bundee and Philly | Running Q&A

As athletes committed to their craft, running wouldn’t be Bundee Aki and Philly McMahon primary sport but we sat down with them when they raced off, to get an insight into their running regimen when they do hit the road. This campaign is all about there being a run in #allofus so it was interesting to hear these two stars insight, as everyone has different ways of approaching running.

Favorite place to run?


I would go for a run around the prom in Salthill.


Phoenix Park would be my favorite spot to run.

Run with others or on your own?


Really depends, I sometimes go for a run on my own to zone out a bit or if I want someone to push me that bit harder, I’d gather a few people.


Mixed, sometimes if I need someone to set the pass I go with a partner but I like going on my own as well, bringing my dog sometimes, running around after him helps.

Go to music while running?


I like a bit of everything, love Rap and RnB though if I was to choose.


Mixture, but mainly house.

Go to meal before running?


I think for me I don’t really need to eat before a run. Always trying to lose weight so I feel it’s best to have a fasted run.


No set meal but probably something that has carbs like pasta, rice or potatoes with some source of protein maybe chicken or fish.

Do you use Wearable Tech?


On the pitch we do, GSP tracking our workout but if it’s just a run and building a sweat I wouldn’t use one.


Yes I’d wear a GPS to track my distance and how fast i’m going covering that distance.

How do you stay motivated and any advise on how to stay motivated?


For myself personally, I just know there is potentially a spot up for grabs that people are going for so that always motivates me to keep fit and keep running. For anyone finding it difficult, try to find that motivation that makes it worth it and keeps you going.


When you have a goal to get your jersey for the team that motivates you enough to do your extra bits and get your distance covered. I would say to people to find that goal in fitness you want acheive and work towards that bit by bit.

Take a look at Bundee and Philly’s race-off to Get Ireland Running below.

Get Set, Run! Adrienne Atkins | Running Q&A

Read about everyday runner Adrienne Atkins who rediscovered her love for running later in life. This is part of the National Campaign to Get Ireland Running with Athletics Ireland and Intersport Elverys. Have a read through what gets Adrienne going and what she loves about the sport and being apart of a club

Name: Adrienne Atkins

One liner on who you are:

53 years old, Mom of 3, Special Needs Assistant.

How and why did you get into running?

Ran as a child, got into coaching in my children’s athletic club and then decided to join them!

How often do you run?

I run 5 times a week. The beauty of running is that it’s outside your doorstep so you don’t need much time in the day to pop out for a quick jog. I love nothing better than meeting up with a few friends and heading out for an evening jog.

What’s your favourite place to run?

My favourite place to run is along the seafront or our local St. Anne’s park.

What keeps you motivated?

What keeps me motivated is trying new distances and competing in Master’s events. There’s a level for everyone and surrounding yourself in a supportive club environment will keep you motivated to achieve whatever your own running goal might be.

What’s your favourite post-run treat?

Favourite post-run treat is coffee and a scone, especially after parkrun on a Saturday morning.

What can you not run without?

I can’t run without my super group of running buddies!

What advice can you offer someone just starting out?

Try and join a running club as it’s so much easier to run with someone. You get great advice and coaching. I didn’t get into running again until I was 51 so you can start at any age! Your local parkrun is another option, great support and you can improve your running very quickly.

Watch Adrienne discuss her experiences in more detail below. There is a run in #allofus.
