Brian O’Kane, who is also Specsavers Northern Ireland Chairman said: ‘Specsavers is the official optician and hearing care services partner of the Guinness PRO 12 as well as an official sponsor of the tournaments’ match officials and referees. As such we have been given privileged access to the unique PRO 12 trophy.
