The province have been official partners with the family-run business for the past three years. As part of the new deal, the Murray Timber Group name will continue to be displayed on the Connacht Rugby home, away and European playing jerseys.
Established in Ballygar, Galway and now based in both Galway and Carlow, Murray Timber Group is one of the largest, most progressive and flexible providers of timber in the country. The Group’s products can be seen in Builders Merchants throughout Ireland and the UK under their own distinctive trademarked SNR (Sustainable Natural Resource) brand.
They have their own dedicated and professional forestry division to offer free forestry management advice and thinning and clear-fell services to forestry growers throughout the country.
Connacht Rugby Head of Commercial & Marketing, Brian Mahony, said:
“We are very happy to extend our deal with Murray Timber Group up to 2021. This partnership, which has been in place since the summer of 2014, has proven a great success.
“With the newly-expanded PRO14 Championship, a position on our playing jersey has become an even more valuable asset and we look forward to showcasing the Murray Timber Group name on our jerseys for the next four years.”
Commenting on the new deal, Patrick Murray, Director of Murray Timber Group, said:
“We are very proud to be extending our partnership with Connacht Rugby. It has been fantastic to be part of the journey over the past three years and to witness the growth of the club both on and off the field.
"Connacht Rugby is an ambitious club with very similar values to our family-run business and we look forward to supporting new Head Coach Kieran Keane and all of the team in the seasons ahead.”
