In celebration of opening 3 new stores in Cork this year Supermac’s will give one lucky Cork person an exclusive opportunity of a lifetime to experience what it is like to play in Croke Park.

Supermac’s has teamed up with the Self-Help Africa to take part in the Croke Park Challenge. It means that one lucky winner will get a chance to experience what it is like to be a player on All Ireland Final day.

Not only will you get to play in Croke Park at a charity match with and against some of Ireland’s top celebs and sports stars but you will get to experience everything else that goes with it including a pre-match meal in a top Dublin hotel, a full personalised kit consisting of playing gear, bag and polo shirt , police escorted bus to Croke Park, commemorative match day programme with your picture and bio included, a DVD with Micheál O Muircheartaigh and Ger Canning providing full match commentary, exclusive drinks reception in the players’ lounge, a Gala Dinner in the Cusack Stand with the Presentation of the Croke Park Challenge Cup at which The Sunday Game panel will provide full analysis and of course some top quality entertainment after the event. And you don’t have to do this on your own. Supermac’s will provide a ticket for a plus one to the Gala event as well

Some of the stars and celebs that will be taking part on the day include Sonia O’Sullivan, Henry Shefflin, Colm Cooper, Tomás Ó Sé, John Treacy, Bernard Dunne, Ray Houghton, Michael Lyster, Cora Staunton, Anna Geary, Rob Heffernan, Roz Purcell, Brendan Griffin TD.

Supermac’s MD Pat McDonagh said that this was an opportunity of a lifetime for a lucky winner from Cork. “The 23rd of October promises to be an unforgettable day at GAA Headquarters for one lucky winner,” he said. “Of the millions that have wanted to, only a lucky few have had the honour of playing on the legendary field on Jones’ Road. Players have represented Cork and their clubs in Croke Park and will do again in the very near future. This competition gives those that haven’t been so lucky an opportunity to do so. To enter is very simple,” Mr. McDonagh said. “Tell us why it would mean so much to you or to someone you know. You can do so via our Facebook pages for the 13 outlets throughout the city and county. We will make a shortlist and then you will get the opportunity to tell Ken Tobin on his afternoon show on 96FM between 12-4 every day. The winner will be announced on Friday the 20th of October.”

Supermac’s 1st opened its doors in Ballinalsoe, Co. Galway 40 years ago and now has 13 outlets in Cork city and county making it the companies 2nd largest base in the country outside of Galway. The expansion in Co. Cork means that the region is one of the largest employment hubs in the Supermac’s network. “Co. Cork has now got 13 Supermac’s and The Charleville Park Hotel. This is the 2nd largest amount of Supermac’s outside of Co. Galway and a lot of our suppliers come from Co. Cork,” Mr. McDonagh said. “Cork is a very important part of the success story that Supermac’s has

become over the last 40 years. Since we started our business 40 years ago our core philosophy has been to work with local businesses, suppliers and communities. Our Cork suppliers have been central to that. Most of our suppliers come from the county. Suppliers like Bandonvale Cheese, Shannonvale Poultry, Barry’s of Mallow, Spice o’ Life, Charleville Cheese, Clona Dairies and Mapp Foods have been with us for many years. We have always believed that good food, sourced locally was key to the success of our business. This has been particularly the case in Cork,” Mr. McDonagh said

The group currently employs over 2,700 people throughout the country. Supermac’s also operates Papa John’s Pizza, SuperSubs and Macs Place Diners. The latest store to open was in Tivoli. The Só Hotel Group as well as the Claddagh Group of Pubs in the United States are also owned by Pat and Úna McDonagh.
