Thurles Sarsfields GAA
Thurles Sarsfields are Tipperary’s most successful GAA club having won the Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship on 36 occasions. The club plays an integral part in the community of Thurles and Tipperary, across adult Hurling and Football in all grades alongside Camogie and Ladies Football at juvenile and adult grades.
e-Frontiers commenced sponsoring Thurles Sarsfields GAA in 2013. Since then, while sporting the e-Frontiers name, they have won the prestigious Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship on 4 occasions. In that time they have also been very successful in other grades in Hurling, Football, Camogie and Ladies Football.
The successful partnership between e-Frontiers and Sarsfields mirrors what both teams strive for - doing their best in a genuine way to help people succeed.
The e-Frontiers partnership with Wicklow GAA commenced in June 2015. We are specifically supporting their u16 Development squad via the Garden County Academy (GCA). The GCA was set-up to provide the Wicklow stars of the future with best in class game development opportunities. This includes coaching, strength and conditioning, nutrition and life coaching.
The GCA initiative is a determined and organised group with ambition. e-Frontiers are delighted to be assisting in developing their players with the aim of maximizing the potential within the county.
As proud sponsors of the Garden County Academy (GCA) U16 squads we are assisting talent and building the foundation for future success

Open Door Initiative
In 2018, e-Frontiers was one of the first organisations joining the Open Doors Initiative. The aim of the Open Doors Initiative is to promote opportunities for long-term unemployed, refugees and asylum seekers and people with disabilities. This includes non-native English speakers and young people under 25 with educational barriers. So far, there are 16 companies participating in the program (including AIB, Coca-Cola, Aldi, Diageo, Hilton Garden Inn, DIT…)
Our particular area of interest is to try to help these people with CV’s, interview preparation, courses etc as this is the area we feel we can offer the most value.
Red Cross in Ireland
In 2016, Patrick’s friends were working for the Red Cross in Ireland helping build an app for the homeless. They required an IT resource and asked e-Frontiers to help find the person. John O’Neill successfully placed a great person free of charge for this important role in building the app for the Red Cross in Ireland.
We continue to work with the Red Cross in Ireland by supporting refugees and asylum seekers to get into the job market once they have been approved by the Irish Government.
