He will help to highlight the NDC’s new ‘Win With Dairy,’ national campaign this Autumn which celebrates the positive role that milk can play as part of a balanced diet in sports nutrition, at whatever level you play or enjoy sports. ‘Win With Dairy’ is part of a nutrition-led strategy which embraces the versatile role of dairy throughout our life-stages.

On the first day of the ploughing visitors to the NDC Dome can get the latest insights and news into what’s happening at the Rugby World Cup when Alan Quinlan connects for a live interview with Michael Corcoran, RTÉ Radio Rugby Commentator, direct from the Rugby World Cup media HQ. It is scheduled for 12.45pm (check time in NDC Dome, schedule may be subject to minor time change). The NDC has taken exclusive sponsorship of RTÉ Radio One & RTÉ 2FM’s Rugby World Cup coverage, as part of its campaign, supported by ‘Win With Dairy’ radio and television advertising, with branding extending to televised highlights of the matches.

NDC Chief Executive Zoë Kavanagh extended best wishes to Rob and Dave Kearney who have been ambassadors to the National Dairy Council since the start of 2014. “They grew up on a farm in Co. Louth and have been superb role models, resonating with people of all ages. The Win With Dairy Autumn marketing campaign builds on our association with the Kearney brothers and the work they have been doing to help us promote the benefits of dairy as part of a balanced diet,” said Ms. Kavanagh.

“Taking part in sport or exercise at any level is a popular way to keep active and a great way to develop an enjoyable life-long habit which can offer many benefits to our health,” said Alan Quinlan.

“Following a healthy, balanced diet is important for all of us and is also essential for any athlete regardless of what sport or competitive level they are involved in. Smart recovery after intense exercise or sport, such as rehydrating and refuelling well, is vital to ensure you perform at your best during the next match or exercise session,” said Alan Quinlan. “Given the natural mix of nutrients in milk, its affordability and accessibility, it’s not surprising that there is growing research pointing to the positive role that milk can play in sports nutrition.”
