In March 2014, Murphy’s & Beamish became ‘Proud Partner’ of the Cork Senior GAA Teams. At thelaunch the Brand Team were delighted to welcome the coaches of the Cork GAA Teams (Brian Cuthbert, Jimmy Barry-Murphy), Captains (Pat Horgan, Michael Shields), and Committee members (Frank Murphy, Bob Ryan), to name a few.
The relationship between the two stouts and Cork GAA initially goes back as far as 1891, when Murphy’s founder James J Murphy donated a fifty guinea cup to the Cork County Board. Beamish later sponsored the County Senior Beamish Shield in the early 1900s. The partnership will last until 2016.
To celebrate the partnership the Brand Team will release 1000 free pints every time Cork Senior GAA play via the ‘When it Rains it Pours’ app. So enjoy a pint on us the next time you’re watching Cork play on the big screen.
