IF YOU EVER wanted a personalised thank you from Eric Elwood or to have a brick in the wall at the Sportsground, now is your chance.
Connacht launched a new crowd funding campaign this morning which they hope will bring in €50,000 in additional funds to develop the next wave of Irish talent.
The “Grassroots to Green Shirts” initiative aims to tap into a broad base of supporters for small donations, offering rewards for anyone who donates at least €10.
The funds raised will then be used to supplement the existing investment by Connacht and the IRFU, estimated by the province at €1.5 million per annum. At least €40,000 is spent on each player who is brought through Connacht’s elite pathway to professional standards.
