Enniskillen Specsavers store manager Martin Carty said, 'We had a brilliant morning at Enniskillen Integrated PS and there was a fantastic buzz amongst the children. As a Guinness PRO12 sponsor we have been given privileged access to the trophy and decided to take it on a tour to schools across Northern Ireland.'
As official sponsor of the Guinness PRO12 match officials and referees, Specsavers are also the official optician and hearing services partner of the Guinness PRO12, providing expert eye care for players and officials, ensuring no ‘should’ve gone to Specsavers’ moments on the pitch. As well as visiting Enniskillen, the trophy also made stops in Omagh, Coleraine, Magherafelt, Newtownabbey, Bangor, as well as brightening up some patients’ days with a special appearance at the Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.
