The news follows SONI’s recent announcement as the new title sponsors of the Ulster Senior League.
Speaking about the sponsorship Shane Brennan, Project Manager at SONI commented: “Local rugby clubs play a fundamental part in the local community, everything from teaching the importance of team spirit and encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle to its young members –clubs like Armagh and their commitment to making a meaningful contribution is commendable and something we at SONI are delighted to support.
“It’s a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment to the local community by supporting a much loved club in Armagh which shares similar values to us. Positively impacting communities across Northern Ireland lies at the heart of everything we do.”

Part of SONI’s work is planning ahead for Northern Ireland’s future growth and developing the electricity grid to meet future demand, projects like the proposed North-South Interconnector are the key to ensuring Northern Ireland has the electricity it needs for economic expansion.
