Special Olympics Ireland
Gala Retail has been embarking upon a special journey with Special Olympics Ireland since 2015. Firstly, as a major sponsorship of Team Ireland at the World Summer Games in LA, and now as a four-year partner, reflecting the four-year Olympic cycle, with our sponsorship continuing until the 2019 World Summer Games.
With almost 10,000 Special Olympics athletes across Ireland and many more volunteers and family members, the Special Olympics family has roots in many of the communities which our stores operate in.
This special partnership was awarded Best Sponsorship by a Symbol Group at the 2015 FMCG Awards by Checkout magazine, and with 100% backing from Gala stores nationwide, it’s a sponsorship that believes that #EveryStepCounts for Ireland’s Special Olympics athletes in their quest to achieve their best.
