Footballer Stephanie Roche will take part in a series of events over the next year as a new ambassador for FBD Hotels & Resorts.
The first of its kind for the hospitality group, the partnership will involve Roche taking part in activities within its Irish and Spanish properties as well as a trip to the Ploughing Championships in September 2015.
The announcement coincides with the tenth anniversary celebrations of Castleknock Hotel & Country Club, one of five properties in the group portfolio.
David Kelly, CEO, FBD Property & Leisure Group (FBDPLL) said Roche embodied the key attributes of the FBD Hotels & Resort’s brand.
“Like Stephanie, we also are very proud of our Irish roots yet strive to develop and grow with properties overseas such as Sunset Beach and La Cala Resort in Spain.”
FBD Property & Leisure Group (FBDPLL) is a joint venture between FBD Holdings plc and Farmer Business Developments.
In Ireland, the group operates three hotels including the 4-star Castleknock Hotel in Dublin, the three star Tower Hotel in Waterford City and the 4-star Faithlegg House Hotel and Golf Resort in County Waterford.
In Southern Spain, the group owns the 4-star and award winning Sunset Beach Club Resort in Benalmadena, Costa del Sol, and the well-known golf, hotel, spa and residential property La Cala Resort in Mijas, Costa del Sol.
