Specsavers is delighted to announce that Orla Kelly from Portumna has won the Specsavers Look for Longer competition.

The staff at Specsavers Eyre Square presented Orla with €2,500 for her nominated club, Portumna GAA Club, Co. Galway.

Look for Longer competition

The innovative campaign tests GAA fans on their county team knowledge by asking them to identify the 32 counties via a series of cryptic clues displayed on posters and digital formats throughout the country.

For the fifth consecutive year, Specsavers is the official sponsor of Hawkeye, the state-of-the-art ball tracking system used in hurling and football games at Croke Park.

Worthy winner

Chairman of Portumna GAA Club, Martin Donohue said: ‘Congratulations to Orla on winning this competition. We are extremely grateful to her for nominating our club. We would also like to express our gratitude to Specsavers for providing this generous contribution which will hugely help improve our facilities in Portumna that will benefit all of our players in the local community.’

Supporting the local community

Store director at Specsavers Eyre Square, Noel Meehan said: ‘As a local community optician and hearing centre, supporting local clubs and charities is a key part of our culture.

'We are delighted to make this donation to Portumna GAA Club and we commend them on the fantastic work they do to ensure that the club fulfils its potential and remains at the heart of the community.’
