We are proud to announce the launch of Clonakilty Take Pride in your Jersey schools programme with Cork City FC.
Centred around supporting young Cork City FC fans and families in the community, Clonakilty Take Pride in your Jersey is inviting primary schools across Cork county to be in with a chance to take part in a season-long initiative that will reward and inspire students, their teachers and their parents.
Winning schools will have a special visitor from the Cork City FC senior team who will spend time talking to the children about what it takes to become a top athlete, the importance of working as a team, core skills to work on if you want to make it to the top and more. The player will also present a prize to the Clonakilty Take Pride in your Jersey Student of the Month who will not only receive a hamper full of Clonakilty goodies but also a Family Ticket for their family to attend a Cork City FC home match that month.
Upholding traditions and having a strong sense of pride in where they’re from are values that Clonakilty Food Co. and Cork City FC share and believe are core to their success. In order to be considered for the programme, schools must enter a competition to design a football jersey for their school to win one of the 25 available places each month. The jersey should reflect the shared values of Cork City and Clonakilty, demonstrating how tradition is at the heart of their school and why they are proud of where they’re from.
Entries should be submitted by 27th January 2017 and winners will be announced on 1st February 2017.

This programme is only open to primary schools in Cork City and County.
