Michael Gaynor, Marketing Director of Toyota Ireland, said “As a long-time supporter of rugby in Ireland, and with Ireland’s captain Paul O’Connell being a long-standing Toyota brand ambassador, we’re delighted to be involved with bringing the excitement of the tournament to Irish fans and Radio Nova keeps the listeners up to date with the latest team news and analysis on the show.”

NOVA’s CEO & Programme Director, Kevin Branigan, said, “We provide a great mix of music and sport on Saturday afternoons and Toyota bring a rich heritage of support to Irish rugby, so we are delighted to be working with them during the Rugby World Cup on NOVA.”
