Brian Mahony, Head of Commercial & Marketing at Connacht Rugby says: "We are thrilled to be teaming up with Tribe Hospitality Group as our Official Catering Partner for the next three years. Tribe are a fast-growing employer based in the West of Ireland with locations that have proved to be very popular with our players and staff members. It's a very challenging time for many businesses and we're looking forward to giving Tribe Hospitality Group the platform to further grow their business and engage with our large passionate fanbase.”
Kevin Nugent, Owner of Tribe Hospitality Group added: “We are incredibly excited to announce this news and become partners with Connacht Rugby for the next three years. The last number of months has been challenging for everyone, but it is great to be able to deliver a positive story. I left the Sportsground 10 years ago this August as restaurant manager to begin my own journey in hospitality setting up Mr Waffle, so it is an incredible feeling to return as Official Catering Partner. The partnership with Connacht has allowed us to employ two more staff again. We are looking forward to delivering the food each week and supporting the lads in the Sportsground soon!”
