Jonathan Sexton has been a MACE Brand Ambassador since 2018 and is delighted to be once again partnering with Ireland’s oldest convenience retail brand and its independent retailers to offer one lucky school or club the opportunity to be trained by him. Commenting, he said, “I’m excited to be once again teaming up with MACE for this initiative. We had a lot of fun recording the new television advert and if we can replicate that sense of fun during this training session it will be a memorable day all round. MACE Retailers are at the heart of the communities in which they are embedded and really look after those communities, which is one of the reasons I am proud to be associated with MACE.”

Daniel O’Connell, MACE Sales Director added, “We are very excited to have Johnny once again front our advertising campaign. MACE retailers are very proud of how they contribute positively to the communities they serve, and Johnny also is a great role model for young people in communities all over Ireland.”

Operated by independent retailers, MACE stores have been serving their local communities for more than 60 years, and with over 160 stores located around the country, the launch of the brand’s new advertising campaign starring Ireland’s most recognisable sports star, will help create further awareness and strengthen the brand as well as supporting local communities.
