Dundalk FC is delighted to announce a two-year deal with PayPal that will see the company become the club’s Official Community Partner.

The partnership will see PayPal offer support to Dundalk FC’s community programme which aims to make a significant social contribution, improve people’s lives and provide opportunities and support to the people of Dundalk and Co Louth.

The club’s community programme focuses on a wide range of topics including mental and physical health awareness, diversity, inclusion, age-friendliness and the promotion of community groups and organisations in our locality.

Dundalk FC will also support and publicise any key community initiatives that are led by PayPal in a bid to make our local community stronger and more sustainable.

“We are delighted to announce this partnership with such an internationally renowned and successful company like PayPal,” said Dundalk FC chief operating officer​ ​Martin Connolly.

“PayPal has established deep roots in Dundalk since it opened its operations centre here in 2012 and provides employment to almost 1,500 people in Dundalk and the surrounding area.

“As a company, PayPal aims to promote a strong inclusive community in the places where its employees live and work and has a deep commitment to diversity, inclusion, equity, and creating a culture of belonging.

“Our community programme is a key pillar of the club’s purpose and identity and this partnership with PayPal will allow us to expand on that over the next two years.”

“Dundalk FC has been at the heart of our community in Dundalk for many years, bringing joy and pride to the people of the town and surrounding areas,” said PayPal Dundalk senior manager Brendan Mulholland.

“It is wonderful to see their broader commitment to give to the community across many dimensions and our PayPal teams are in turn proud to be part of this journey with them.”

PayPal’s mission is to democratise financial services to ensure that everyone, regardless of background or economic standing, has access to affordable, convenient and secure products and services to take control of their financial lives.

The company believes access to affordable and convenient financial services should be a right for all rather than a privilege for the few. To achieve this, the company is aligned around one central vision: to make the movement and management of money as simple, secure and affordable as possible.
