Queen's University Belfast to Host GAA Festival

Queen’s University Belfast to Host GAA Festival

February 7, 2014  |  News  |  Share

 

The GAA Clubs at Queen’s University have secured the right to host the Ashbourne, Sigerson, Fitzgibbon and O’Connor Cups in February / March 2014. Together, these are the marquee University GAA events for Camogie, Football, Hurling and Ladies Football respectively. This will be an ambitious and unique initiative as no college has ever hosted even two of the four major tournaments in the same academic year.

Queen’s University have a proud history of hosting sporting events successfully and the GAA Club has been praised for raising the bar for the quality of inter varsity tournament hosting on each of the last two occasions of hosting the Sigerson Cup – in 2007 and 1999.

The four sporting competitions will be complemented by a programme of events celebrating university sport, culture, student achievement, the GAA and Belfast as a host city. All of the events will be marketed collectively under the one banner, Queen’s GAA Festival.

Queen’s GAA Festival will be based mainly at Queen’s Sport’s facilities at Upper Malone. A marquee will be erected for the Festival weekends, it along with the superb pavilion facilities at Upper Malone will be the host venues for many of the non GAA sporting events.
