Putting the ‘Irish’ into London Irish

Putting the 'Irish' into London Irish - Bob Casey

Bob Casey has vowed to bring London Irish back into the heartbeat of the community, as the chief executive of the club launched its new business association.

The London Irish Rugby Business Alliance held its launch event last week at the Irish Embassy as the club pushes on to bring itself back as the place where figures in business and sport alike can network for the benefit of the club and the economy both here and in Ireland.

The event had 150 guests in attendance including the Chairman of British Airways, President of IRFU, CCO of Thomson Reuters, MD of Galliard Homes, Chairman of London GAA and many other prominent figures in Irish business in the UK.

The London Irish Rugby Business Alliance is a new networking group, where business people from across London can come together to inspire business growth through the world of sport.

Last night saw the Irish Ambassador Dan Mulhall and London Irish Chief Executive Bob Casey outline the correlation between sport and business and how each can complement the other.


London Irish Chief Executive, Bob Casey said: “Last Wednesday’s event was a great success and there was real excitement and interest in both the Rugby Alliance and where London Irish is going. There is a great synergy between sport and business and we work closely with a number of sponsors and partners. The Rugby Business Alliance will create a business community which will allow brands the opportunity to work together and inspire business and individual growth through sport.”
