Guinness have ended their 16-year sponsorship

The Covid-19 crunch continues for the IRFU, who have confirmed that Guinness have ended their 16-year sponsorship of the November internationals.

The union suffered a €37.5m (£32m) loss last season and are projecting a €29m (£24.7m) loss this year as a result of matches taking place behind closed doors. Twenty staff took redundancy in April, while all playing and non-playing staff have taken pay cuts.
