As the official medical partner, we will be working closely with the DublinLGFA medical staff to assist them to keep the senior squad fit and healthy by providing players with access to our world-class healthcare facilities and wide team of specialists at our hospital in Glasnevin.“
The partnership has been agreed initially until 2024 and both the hospital and the team are keen to establish a longer term relationship.
Mike Tonery went on to say that: “Delivering healthcare excellence to patients from across Ireland requires team work and dedication and with so many of our staff and their families already firm supporters of the team, partnering with the DublinLGFA team is a fantastic way for the Bon Secours Hospital Dublin to be involved. Best of luck to the team on Saturday and for the season ahead. We look forward to seeing the ladies and Dublin bringing even more silverware to Glasnevin in 2021.”

“Quick access to diagnostics tests and scans plays a critical role in facilitating early diagnosis, rehabilitation and return to play. Having speedy access to these services and the range of specialists at the Bon Secours Hospital Dublin will ensure that our players receive the best possible care and are back on the pitch as soon as possible. This is of particular importance this year with the season being so condensed and competitive. We look forward to the partnership continuing over the coming years.”
