Honda Win Prestigious Award at Cannes Lions Festival
Universal Honda Ltd. is pleased to announce a partnership with Cork Senior Footballer Brian Hurley who will get behind the wheel of a new Honda Civic 1.6 i-DTEC Sport as a Honda Brand Ambassador.
Hurley is fast becoming one of the rising stars in the GAA, having last year been named as Munster U21 Player of the Year. That same year also saw him join the Cork Senior Football Panel and quickly affirm his place within the team for the 2014 Season.
A native of Union Hall in West Cork, Brian began playing for Castlehaven at 6 years of age, most recently securing back to back county titles with Castlehaven for the first time last year, while being named Man of the Match in the final. Graduating recently from Carlow IT with an honours degree in Business Marketing, Brian is also the institutions Player of the Year 2014.
Commenting on his partnership with Honda, Brian said “I am delighted to be a Honda Ambassador. I was always brought up associated with Honda cars, as my father and grandfather were Honda Dealers. Now I am lucky enough to be working with Honda myself, and it’s great to be a part of such a distinguished brand.”
Emmet Kavanagh, Marketing Manager at Universal Honda Ltd. commented, “For many reasons, Honda are very proud to partner with Brian. The Honda association goes back a long way with the Hurley family and we are pleased that our partnership with Brian extends this tradition to a third generation.
When it comes to sponsorship we look to work with those who excel in their chosen field, with a clear passion and dedication for what they do. Brian has shown immense talent as an award winning young player, and we are proud to support him at the start of what is sure to be a long and successful senior career. We look forward to following him and the rest of the Cork team throughout this years’ Championship Season and beyond.”
