Connacht Rugby is delighted to announce a new two-year partnership with Irish Citylink.

Effective immediately, Citylink will come on board as the Official Coach Partner of Connacht Rugby.

As Coach Partner, Citylink will provide coach travel for the Connacht professional teams and all Connacht representative teams. Citylink will also provide preferential rates for all rugby clubs around Connacht.

In addition, Citylink are keen to offer Connacht fans the best intercity transfers whether that is to interprovincial games around the country or to the Aviva for Ireland internationals.

The deal will see a new Connacht Rugby and Citylink co- branded coach on the roads. When not being used by the team, supporters can expect to see the Connacht coach commuting between Dublin airport and Galway. So who knows, on your next visit to the airport you may be sitting in Pat Lam, John Muldoon or Robbie Henshaw’s seat.

David Conway, Business Operations Manager of Citylink commented on the sponsorship:

“Citylink are delighted to be joining forces with Connacht Rugby as their Official Coach Provider.  Our top of the range luxury coaches and frequent direct services are a perfect match for a top class rugby team.  We look forward to welcoming the team and supporters on-board our coaches where they can relax and appreciate the facilities such as on-board toilets, free wifi and power sockets.”

“It is great to develop another official partnership with a company based here in Connacht. The quality of service that Citylink offer is second to none and I’m confident that our players and fans will find their services both comfortable and efficient. The professional team alone have 12 return trips to the airport per season so it is essential they have a coach which is both spacious and modern.”
