John Muldoon - the fresh face of Supermac’s
Connacht Rugby captain John Muldoon is a new ambassador for Supermac’s.
Muldoon will be promoting Supermac's "Fresh" range of Irish beef and chicken products.
Supermac's says Muldoon, who comes from a strong farming background, is a natural fit for the campaign.
“We are delighted to have John on board as brand ambassador for our fresh range of products,” Supermac’s MD, Pat McDonagh said. “John is an icon of Irish rugby and has proven himself as a great competitor. He has always brought a fresh approach to his demeanour on and off the pitch. He is a natural fit for this fresh range of products and the Supermac’s brand in general.”
John Muldoon says Supermac’s is an integral part of the communities in which they are located.
“One of the things that makes Supermac’s unique is that they listen to their customers and give them what they want. One of the things customers look for is fresh 100 per cent Irish beef and chicken. When you compare these fresh products to frozen offerings, you know the customer is the primary focus of what Supermac’s do.”
Supermac’s is the longest serving sponsor of a GAA intercounty team, having begun its sponsorship of Galway hurling in 1991. Supermac’s now sponsors Galway Football, Galway Camogie, Galway Ladies Football, Galway Ladies Soccer, Galway United, and now John Muldoon.
