Kukri is proud to announce a new partnership with one of the oldest and most traditional schools in Ireland. Blackrock College has a reputation which surpasses itself in sport as well as academia, so we are delighted to have been chosen as their kit supplier.
The Kukri Ireland team have worked hard to ensure Kukri came up with a strategy that worked for the school in making sure not only did we provide fantastic kit for the boys to wear with pride, but also designs that incorporated the schools ethos and principles. The school's motto of 'Fearless and Bold' will shine through in this partnership, especially when the Alumni range is launched in a few months. The three year deal also includes their Prep school, Willow Park.
Rugby is a big deal at Blackrock as it is for us here at Kukri and former pupils include Irish rugby legends Brian O'Driscoll, Luke Fitzgerald and Brendan Mullan just to name a few.
Kukri Ireland's Barry Hilliard says: "Over the last 15 months the brand has made huge steps to achieving Kukri's goal of it becoming the largest multisport supplier to schools market in Ireland. With a school of the reputation, success and history of sporting achievements across a range of sports that Blackrock College has, it is a welcome addition to our partnered schools. We look forward to working closely with them over the next number of years to create an image that not only the students will be proud of but, also their parents and alumni associations as well."
Alan MacGinty from Blackrock College adds: "We are delighted to align with Kukri for the supply of our sportswear. Blackrock College has a long established reputation for excellence across a broad spectrum of sporting disciplines, most notably rugby. Kukri's personnel, their products and passion for sport provide the bedrock of this new and exciting partnership. The partnership has been welcomed by our Parents' Association who appreciate the provision of high quality durable garments at very competitive prices."
