Round Tower GAA Club and SIAC are delighted to announce a three year sponsorship arrangement

The deal will see SIAC Construction become premier juvenile sponsors of the club and four teams – across both the football and hurling sections - will carry the distinctive SIAC Construction logo on their playing jerseys for the next three seasons.

The club and SIAC have been neighbours in the Clondalkin area since the mid-1980s when ‘Towers purchased their current playing pitch on Monastery Road adjacent to SIAC’s headquarters.

Today’s announcement is an extension of the positive relations and goodwill that have been generated between the two bodies in the period since.

Round Tower GAA Club Chairman, Mr Paul Curran, welcomed confirmation of the support of a locally based business that is held in such regard across the country and further afield.

He said: “As a club we are delighted to announce that SIAC will be supporting our juvenile section over the course of the next 36 months.

“Fundraising initiatives such as this are vital to ensure the ongoing promotion of Gaelic Games in the Clondalkin area and we would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all in SIAC who have made this arrangement possible.

“Vital sponsorships like this – from whatever source – are always welcome. However, when it happens to involve a locally based company with a distinguished reputation like SIAC’s, it is an added bonus.

“Relations between ourselves and our near neighbours have never been anything but cordial and we would hope that this development can be the next step in what should be a long and fruitful relationship in the years ahead.”
