Colin Walshe, Monaghan Senior Football Captain, spoke of the new sponsorship and what it will bring to Monaghan this season; “Any sports person knows the importance of hydration and getting good clean water into the body. We have worked on improving ourselves this season and increasing the intensity we bring to games. This will mean the lads will need to be thinking of hydration as a part of their match preparation and it is a perfect fit to have a Monaghan company such as Celtic Pure with us to support our goal.”
Malachy O’Rourke, Monaghan Manager, spoke about the partnership ahead of the 2017 season for Monaghan; “It’s great to have a partner like Celtic Pure on board this season. Hydration is a key part of sports performance and we are delighted to be partnering with a local home-grown water company like Celtic Pure.”

We are a proud Irish company that supplies fresh spring water to our customers and are glad to bring the two together and support our own side, Monaghan football.”
