Owner of Craig Smith Spray Painting; Craig Smith added: 

“I’m delighted to be sponsoring such a great programme for an international event. As a small business, the publicity and exposure at such a high level could mean an increase in business and will open the doors to a wider clientele. I’m good friends with Terry and Karen Staunton who I bought the ticket from and Karen is on the Women’s O50 team. I have sponsored the Oblates Basketball Club and try to watch the games when I can. I wish all the Ireland teams all the very best of luck in the FIMBA European Championship in Italy.
