Cricket Leinster is delighted to announce that Skellig Six18 will become the 'Official Spirits Partner' from this January 2022 for 3 years.
This partnership has been formed by an equal determination to achieve great success, while celebrating each step along the way. The home of the Skellig Six18 distillery is in Cahersiveen at the very SW tip of Co. Kerry. Their name is inspired by the 618 steps to the UNESCO monastery site on nearby Skellig Mór, out in the Atlantic. Skellig Six18 hand-crafted Gin, will be promoted in association with Cricket Leinster adult competitions and events throughout the 12 counties of the Province and actively supported across the club network.
From a Cricket Leinster perspective, this sponsorship will mean further investment in club cricket competitions and events over the next period - "We are delighted to be partnering with Skellig Six18 and believe that both parties will benefit hugely from this agreement. From a Cricket Leinster perspective, we will be leveraging this sponsorship investment to further expand and enhance our adult competitions and to further promote club cricket throughout the province".
For Skellig Six18, this sponsorship is equally viewed as a hugely positive development - Pat Cooney, Director, commented as follows - "At Skellig Six18, we are very pleased to sponsor and become Cricket Leinster’s official spirits partner. We believe that this partnership represents an aligned focus on driving success throughout the province for both of us - while always having the Muinín to be ourselves. From a personal perspective, I still recall my own 'high-profile' cricket experience when I had the opportunity to feature in a Leinster Cup Final many years ago - the details are consigned to folklore at this stage!"
