Players from New – Bridge Integrated College, Banbridge High School and St Patrick’s Banbridge join together to celebrate their victory in the Cúchulainn Cup Blitz 2017.
The annual Ulster GAA Cúchulainn Cup took place at the Meadowbank Sports Arena, Magherafelt on Wednesday 15th March. The Cúchulainn Cup aims to offer young people from different backgrounds the opportunity to engage with one another, and to educate people not traditionally involved with the GAA.
Taking-part were teams from all over Northern Ireland. Banbridge Cuchulainns faced off against teams from Magherafelt, Ballymena, Cookstown and Dungannon. Each team comprised of several schools from a town coming together to play Gaelic games in a cross-community team.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_2″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]
Ulster GAA Vice Chairperson Oliver Galligan praised the schools and teachers for their enthusiasm in becoming involved, and thanked the players for the great spirit in which the games were played. “The Cúchulainn Cup continues to be a very worthwhile project, as evidenced by the many happy faces, skill, and great interaction between teams seen at this year’s Cúchulainn Cup Blitz.” – Mr J McGlade[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_image admin_label=”Image” src=”http://www.newbridgeintegrated.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Winners.jpg” show_in_lightbox=”on” url_new_window=”off” use_overlay=”off” animation=”off” sticky=”off” align=”left” force_fullwidth=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
