Mary NOLAN, Group Marketing and Communications Manager at Anglo Irish Bank, said, 'We are delighted to engage in this partnership with the Irish Sailing Association. Sailing is rooted in the history and heritage of this country and we look forward to supporting the ISA in their events for the year to encourage, drive and create awareness of our sailing talent and enthusiasm for this sport in Ireland.'
The ISA will use the funds available through the sponsorship to develop the organization, build the sport of sailing at a grass-roots level, and improve the marketing of its products and services. ISA President Robert DIX commented, 'The Irish Sailing Association is very pleased to be working with as prestigious an organization as Anglo Irish Bank. Enticing them on board is a testament to the professionalism and drive of our organization. I am confident that our partnership with Anglo Irish Bank will allow us to substantially improve the support of our sailing events in Ireland and will lead to greater general awareness of our activities.'
