Sports Sponsorship

Supporting the home market through local sponsorships as well as supporting cross–community sporting programmes has always been at the heart of the key values and ambitions of Irwin’s Bakery. We engage in a number of sponsorships within the local community to encourage sports and healthy eating at a young age.

Nutty Krust Under 18 Rugby Tournament

We are currently undergoing our 37th year of sponsoring this event.

We look forward to this tournament every year as it is a true showcase of the young talent Northern Ireland has to offer. 

As a local business that has been baking bread for more than 100 years, we have always been big supporters of grassroots athletics across Northern Ireland as it is our way of contributing to Northern Ireland’s strong heritage of sport. The Nutty Krust Rugby Floodlit Tournament gives young star athletes a fun but challenging tournament.
