With speculation growing that the Cork County Board is to sell the naming rights for the re-developed Páirc Uí Chaoimh, BoyleSports has priced up a market on who will land the coveted deal.
The venue is due to re-open in June 2017 and it’s their current GAA sponsor, Chill Insurance, that has been installed as the 7/4 favourites. Cork based paper the Irish Examiner is next in the betting at 7/2, with local newspaper The Evening Echo priced at 14/1.
The name BoyleSports Páirc Uí Chaoimh would be very easy to get used to as well and Ireland’s largest independent bookmaker are 10/1 to seal the deal.
High flying airline, Ryanair, are 14/1 to land the deal with Cork’s favourite brew, Barry’s Tea, also priced at 14/1 as well as well as native Irish food wholesaler Musgrave.
Outsiders to land the naming rights include computer software giant Dell who are priced at 33/1, whilst local brewing company Murphy’s are 50/1 alongside Midleton Whiskey.
Liam Glynn, BoyleSports’ spokesperson said: “Chill Insurance who are the Rebel County’s main sponsor head the betting at 7/4 to land the naming rights but they may have some competition on their hands to seal the deal.”
He added “We could certainly get used to the name BoyleSports Páirc Uí Chaoimh, and despite being a 10/1 chance to secure the deal, with our large portfolio of shops in county Cork, Ireland’s largest independent bookmaker could be a perfect fit for the redeveloped Páirc Uí Chaoimh.”
