Emirates cabin crew Danielle Sharp and Alicia Odell join Margaret Shannon, Emirates Country Manager for Ireland, to announce year two details of the airline’s sponsorship of the Irish Open

Following the record-breaking, sell-out tournament at Royal Portrush in 2012, Emirates is again preparing to welcome tens of thousands of golfing fans to the Emirates Booth at Carton House, to enjoy A Taste of Dubai, with traditional Arabic coffee and dates, and a chance to view all the on-course action from a live-feed plasma screen. There will also be an opportunity to learn more about Emirates and the 134 destinations to which it connects customers, along with a chance to win great prizes.

Emirates’ three-year sponsorship of the Irish Open is an integral part of the airline’s commitment to the Irish market, following the successful launch of its flights from Dublin in January 2012.

The agreement with the Irish Open includes course branding, tournament hospitality, advertising and on-site activity, including a corporate marquee and team participation in the Tournament Pro-Am.

Reigning champion Jamie Donaldson returns to defend his title and among his opposition will be home-bred Major Champions Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell, Darren Clarke and Padraig Harrington. A special home welcome will be reserved for Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley, who will be making his first playing appearance in Ireland since his historic appointment earlier this year. Former Irish Open Champion and rising star of international golf, Shane Lowry, will have added incentive to win, as Touring Professional for Carton House since 2012.

“Emirates’ official airline partnership with the 2012 Irish Open was our maiden sponsorship in Ireland and a strategic part of growing and cementing our brand presence in a new, emerging market,” said Margaret Shannon, Country Manager for Emirates in Ireland. “The Irish Open is one of the European Tour’s best attended tournaments and we are looking forward to meeting and welcoming thousands of golf fans to the Emirates Booth over the four days.”
