We support the GAA Cúl Camps because we passionately believe in getting kids out and active and, just like the GAA, we like to think Kellogg’s is at the heart of Irish communities.”Kellogg’s cereals have been available in Ireland since 1924. Today the cereal market in Ireland is worth €170 million annually, with Kellogg’s holding a 40 per cent share.
