The award-winning Irish Maritime Festival is back and this year Virgin Media are aboard as lead sponsors.
“The Festival, now in its fifth year, is going from strength-to-strength,” explains Mary T. Daly of Louth County Council. “We attracted record numbers in 2016 and the Festival’s reputation is growing both nationally and internationally. We are delighted to announce that our new lead sponsor is Virgin Media. Their generous support will help us to make The Irish Maritime Festival 2017 bigger and better than ever.”
Virgin Media, Ireland’s fastest broadband network, are the new title sponsors of the Festival. This is their second year of involvement with the festival and their announcement as title sponsor represents a significant investment in this event.
Speaking at the announcement, Vice President of Virgin Media Paul Farrell continued “Virgin Media is delighted to support the Irish Maritime Festival as title sponsor. Our association with the event enables us to demonstrate one of our key strengths in delivering Ireland’s fastest broadband network through providing free public WiFi for visitors attending the festival. We’re also introducing our award winning services to more homes and businesses across Drogheda through our network investment programme. It is a terrific event for citizens of Drogheda to attract more visitors to the region and benefit the local economy.”
Mayor of Drogheda, Cllr. Oliver Tully, concluded “We are so proud of The Irish Maritime Festival. It is by far the largest and most complex annual event that takes place in the north-east. We pride ourselves on delivering a highly interactive and innovative event that offers fun for all ages. With the support of Virgin Media, I am confident that The Irish Maritime Festival 2017 will be the best one yet!”
