#backedbyAIB

“The team at AIB Galway are very proud to continue our engagement with the PorterShed, as main sponsor. This sponsorship is a key part of our drive to support the business life of our community, beyond the provision of banking services. We recognise and applaud the achievements of the PorterShed team including its recent Validator regional roadshow for early-stage start-up‘s and its Open for Business initiative (that highlighted local businesses which continue to serve customers during the Covid crisis). These recent initiatives supplement the long-term value created by the team in supporting the creation of hundreds of jobs over the last four years and really show the value that the PorterShed is adding to the economy in the West of Ireland. Go n-eiri libh go leir!” 

Evin Cusack, Head of AIB Galway & Mayo
