Ballygowan announces 3-year partnership with Irish Open

Ballygowan has announced a new three-year agreement with The European Golf Tour as official water and soft drinks partner to the Irish Open.

The announcement comes as the prestigious event is set to return to Northern Ireland for the first time in nearly 60 years when the Royal Portrush Golf Club will host the 2012 Irish Open at the end of June.

Kevin Donnelly, Marketing Director for Britvic Ireland, commented, “Ballygowan Natural Mineral Water is thrilled to be sponsoring the Irish Open.  

"We have a long and proud tradition of supporting sporting events across the island of Ireland and in this momentous year, as the eyes of the world continue to focus on Northern Ireland’s world class players, there has never been a better time to be associated with golf and the golfing world and this very special Championship."  

The Commercial Director of The European Tour James Finnigan added, “We’re delighted to continue our long-established relationship with Ballygowan and look forward to joining forces with them at Royal Portrush to ensure a highly successful return to Northern Ireland for the Irish Open”.
