Flying the flag for Irish design and ethical manufacturing over the weekend was Grainne Campbell and her daughter Ciara Campbell of GEFF Ireland, based in Stranorlar, Co. Donegal.  

As GEFF Sport distributor in Ireland since 2016, Grainne supplies high specification, ethically manufactured sportswear into clubs, teams and institutions all around the world, across all sport disciplines.  

This weekend Grainne was the official provider of custom design event merchandise at the Continental Europe and Asia Oireachtas held this year in France through her own Irish brand developed for Irish Dancing (and inspired by her daughter); Rhythm Nation.

A graduate of LYIT and more recently Trinity College Dublin, Grainne pays tribute to the support from the team in the Donegal Local Enterprise Office, who are tireless in their support of new and growing enterprises; “starting and growing your business can be challenging but with the support of the Donegal LEO you and your business can be better prepared to take advantage of opportunities quickly, efficiently and with more positive outcomes”.
