Europcar Ireland presents Leinster and Ireland rugby star with keys to all new Hyundai Tucson
Leinster and Ireland rugby out-half Joey Carbery has been announced as a new ambassador for leading car rental company Europcar Ireland. In doing so, Joey will join a team of leading sports professionals who represent Europcar Ireland as brand ambassadors, including Olympic triathlete Bryan Keane and professional golfer Kevin Phelan.
Originally from New Zealand, Joey moved to Athy in Co. Kildare at the age of 11 and played rugby for his school, Blackrock College, and club, Clontarf Rugby Club, before joining the Leinster squad at 20 and the Ireland squad at 21 years of age. In his role as a Europcar Ireland brand ambassador, Joey will drive a Hyundai Tucson vehicle from the Europcar mid-size SUV range and will support the car rental company on a range of activity promoting its extensive vehicle fleet.
Speaking about the announcement, Joey Carbery commented, “Joining Europcar Ireland as a brand ambassador comes at an exciting time for me and I’m very grateful to have the support of Europcar at this important stage in my career. At the moment I’m constantly on-the-go for training sessions and other commitments so it’s a fantastic opportunity to partner with Europcar.”
