Entekra Secures Naming Rights to the Monaghan GAA Centre of Excellence
July 13th, 2018
Off-site construction start-up Entekra has acquired naming rights to the sports venue of the Monaghan Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), which is located in the same county as the company’s Irish headquarters. The Monaghan facility for Ireland’s largest sporting organization is now known as the “Entekra Monaghan GAA Centre of Excellence.”
“All of us at Entekra on both sides of the Atlantic are honored to be associated with the ‘Entekra Monaghan GAA Centre of Excellence,’” says CEO Gerard McCaughey. “This partnership is symbolic of the value we place on the pursuit of excellence, both professionally and personally, as we work with U.S. homebuilders to help them transition to off-site construction, and, in turn, construct higher quality, more sustainable housing for families.”
McCaughey adds that the drive of the Entekra team to seek excellence – as well as ties to Monaghan – predate the company’s founding in late 2016. Entekra’s current workforce includes many key members of McCaughey’s former company, Monaghan-based Century Homes, which played an integral role in the adoption of off-site building technologies in Europe during the 1990s and early 2000s, before the company was acquired in 2005 by building materials giant Kingspan for $100 million.
Located in the town of Cloghan, the Entekra Monaghan GAA Centre of Excellence features five full-size soccer fields and state-of-the-art training facilities, including locker rooms and offices. Entekra’s sponsorship of the Centre, which is used by all levels of amateur athletics in the GAA, is initially in place for a three-year period.
