Brian O’Driscoll was honoured at his last ever home international by a floating banner adorned with his image. Sunbaba supplied the 10m x 12m banner which formed part of a sponsored Sky Flag flown around the stadium.
Commissioned just two weeks prior to the game, the Sky Flag featured prominently in the BBC’s post-match coverage, including during an interview with the player himself. Irish Captain O’Driscoll was competing in his last international match on home soil as he nears the end of a 15-year career.


Sunbaba supplied the banner to Airstar, the company responsible for supplying the finished Sky Flag. Speaking after the match, Sunbaba Technical Director Trevor Booth said he was delighted with the outcome.  “The game was extremely significant and we are very proud to have been involved. We produced the banner on our specialist lightweight flag fabric so that the Sky Flag could lift it easily. One of the visual benefits of using this material was the high quality resolution we could achieve and the fact that the image would be visible on both sides.”

Managing Director of Airstar David Gaine was pleased to have worked with Sunbaba. “Having spent many years in the events industry you learn which other companies are the best in the market to compliment your own business. When we received the call from Grooveyard Event Management in Dublin regarding the Sky Flag it was very obvious to me that Sunbaba were the ones to call.”
