Killarney Paralympic hopeful Jordan Lee has received the backing of sports sponsorship and management agency Sport Endorse.

The move will allow Lee to concentrate fully on preparations for his attempt to qualify for the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer.

Dublin-based Sport Endorse, which was co-founded by Tralee man Trevor Twamley, will take charge of commercial opportunities ahead of Tokyo and beyond.

The company will introduce him to potential sponsors, essential product suppliers and other commercial opportunities within the professional international sport sector.

Lee, and his coach Tomas Griffin, continue to prepare for the Summer Olympics at the newly opened Killarney Valley Athletic Club Arena on New Road.

While they prepare for potential selection on the Irish Paralympic Team, Sport Endorse through its sponsorship and brand partnership programmes, will ensure he won’t have to worry about financial issues.

“Jordan is great, I really think he is going to do very well and if he doesn’t medal at Tokyo he will certainly medal at the next Olympics in Paris,” Twamley told the Killarney Advertiser.

Sport Endorse has over 500 elite athletes on its books including former Kerry football star Kieran Donaghy and Irish soccer star John Egan, son of Kerry GAA legend, the late John Sr.

The company recently secured a €45m sponsorship deal with Team Qhubeka ASSOS, the first-ever professional cycling team from Africa that will enter world-class cycling events like the Tour de France.

While Killarney made it through to the last five, in the end it was Waterford City which claimed the overall title of Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021.

While the city was the unanimous choice of the judging panel it had to beat off stiff competition from Killarney and three other shortlisted locations: Clonakilty, Co Cork, Galway city and the village of Glaslough in Co Monaghan.

Among the things which impressed the judges about Waterford were its beautiful buildings, its liveability, its pedestrian friendly public space, its weather, and its easy access to the Comeragh Mountains and the Copper Coast.

The Chair of the judging panel Conor Goodman congratulated Killarney on its fine showing in the competition.

“Given the level of entries and the extremely high standard of those entries, making it into the Best 5 Places to Live in Ireland really is a wonderful achievement which I’m sure everyone in Killarney and Kerry is really proud of. We were delighted with the level of interest in the competition and would like to thank everyone who nominated a place or who engaged with us on it.”

The Irish Times Best Place to Live in Ireland contest, which is supported by Randox Health, began in June.

In total 470 locations were nominated by more than 2,400 people from all 32 counties for the title of ‘Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021’.
