The team began in 2006 with the name Sean Kelly Team ACLVB-M Donnelly as the first Irish professional cycling team. Shortly after its launch another Irish continental team was launched, Team Murphy & Gunn-Newlyn. For the 2007 season, these two teams merged to form the Murphy & Gunn-Newlyn-M Donnelly-Sean Kelly team. At the end of 2007 it was announced that An Post would replace Murphy & Gunn as main sponsor while Grant Thornton replaced the Newlyn group as a co-sponsor.
Ever since the team has a good relationship with sponsors, riders and fans. That makes this team unique and here to stay!
