Ulster Council Save The Day
01 March 2010

The club was able to go ahead with their support for the primary schools hurling tournament when the Ulster Council intervened following the destruction of thousands of pounds worth of hurling equipment in an arson attack on their club mini-bus outside a community transport base in the north of the city.  The tournament at the city's Kelvin hall was the culmination of a coaching block in the schools run by Langside College's sports department as part of an HND sports coaching course.  All of the students had been supported by the Scotland GAA's fulltime Community Development Administrator, Ciaran Kearney, who also ran a Foundation level Coaching course for them.  "Within an hour of us discovering the bus was destroyed we had offers of help from both the Ulster Council and Croke Park. For this we will be forever grateful." commented club chiarman, Maurice Friel
