East Kerry Teams New Sponsor 2016 The Shire

The East Kerry Senior team was presented with a set of jerseys by their new sponsor, The Shire last Sunday. This is a case of the wheel coming full circle as Ollie Favier the owner of The Shire comes from a family steeped in all things East Kerry GAA. Ollie played on the East Kerry Under 21 team, that won the County Championship in 1999. Ollie also played on the East Kerry Senior team alongside his brother Paul, while members of the family served with distinction on the East Kerry Board, his dad Dan Favier as treasurer, his uncles Pat both as Secretary and Chairman of the Board, and his late uncle Joe served as PRO of the Board. Dan was also involved with the East Kerry Senior, Under 21 and Minor teams in the 1990s. A highlight of this service was being involved with the East Kerry team that won 3 in a row, in the Senior County Championship in 1997, 1998 and 1999 and Dan continues his involvement being one of the Boards stalwarts serving as gatemen in all weathers. Ollie wishes the team all the best on Saturday and looks forward to his association with the East Kerry Senior team.
