Supermac invests in Galway health supplement company

Published

on

The owner and founder of Supermac’s has backed his belief in a Galway healthfood company – by buying ten per cent of the business.

Pat McDonagh, Managing Director of Supermac’s, Claddagh Irish Restaurants and Pubs, and the Castletroy Park Hotel in Limerick, has taken a stake in the Galway Natural Health Company which is behind the recently launched advanced dietary supplement, Revive Active.

The investment also marks the appointment of Pat McDonagh as a non-executive director of the business which was founded in 2011 by Daithi O’Connor and Liam Salmon.

Revive Active is a high quality blend of 26 ingredients delivered in one convenient sachet. The unique blend of vitamins and minerals combine to provide a multitude of health benefits including natural sustained energy without the use of sugar and caffeine, a boosted heart and cardiovascular system, amongst other benefits. 

The revolutionary product also brings two key Nobel prize-winning ingredients together for the first time. The combined inclusion of Coenzyme Q10 and L-Arginine further improves Revive Active’s ability to enhance energy and vitality and support a healthy immune system in regular consumers.

“I am very excited to be involved with this exceptional new product.  Revive Active is highly beneficial as a daily supplement to people seeking to achieve and maintain high levels of mental and physical performance in sport, business and in life in general. I began taking Revive Active six months ago and after only a few days I began to notice the increase in my energy levels on a sustained basis throughout the working day,” said Pat McDonagh this week.  

“As a Galway man I believe it is vital to support local industry and I am encouraged further by the determination and business knowledge demonstrated by Revive Active Founders Daithi O’Connor and Liam Salmon.  I am completely convinced of Revive Active’s merits and potential, and am confident that the product will have wide ranging global appeal and success in other countries outside Ireland,” he added.

 Daithi O’Connor said they were delighted to welcome Pat on board.

“With his business acumen and extensive experience, we believe we are well placed to develop the reach of Revive Active in Ireland and overseas; we are currently stocked in over 400 outlets in Ireland and 35 in the UK.

“The reaction we have been receiving to our product has been incredible encouraging and word-of-mouth endorsement from our customers seems to be one of our best-selling tools,” he added.

There was a festive atmosphere at Shannon Airport this week as the inaugural Ryanair Corfu service prepared to take flight – ahead of another new service to Gran Canaria, which begins this week.

The new route to the popular Greek Island will operate twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays until the end of October, and the new weekly Ryanair service to Gran Canaria (Las Palmas) begins this Saturday.

All of this means that Shannon Airport is now serving Alicante, Barcelona, Stansted, Gatwick, Kaunas, Krakow, Wroclaw, Warsaw, Manchester, Corfu, Faro, Lanzarote, Malaga, Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canaria (Las Palmas) and Turin.

Passengers on the first Corfu-bound flight enjoyed a pre-departure reception in the airport’s transit lounge which was decorated in festive style.

To celebrate the new routes, the airport gave one lucky passenger a special surprise, return flight tickets for two people to a choice of one of Shannon Airport’s 17 exciting destinations.

A special water cannon salute by the airport’s fire service added an extra sense of occasion as airport staff welcomed passengers and looked after them throughout their time in the airport.

Welcoming the new air services Mary Considine, CEO, Shannon Group, which owns and manages Shannon Airport said: “The global pandemic has had a huge impact on all our lives and being able to once again welcome our passengers as they take to the skies bound for sun drenched holiday destinations is really wonderful.
