After the success of the Boys’ Cúchulainn Team in 2019, it is now over to the girls to represent Antrim in 2020 in the annual Cúchulainn Cup.
Pierce Caherty, the Community Sports Development Officer for the Ulster GAA came in to talk to the prospective team in a “Getting to know the GAA” presentation. He spoke about the background of the GAA and wanted to promote a greater understanding of the organisation and also and highlighted their ongoing links with Ulster Rugby and the Irish Football Association. Pierce and Miss Rankin spoke about their experiences of being involved with last year’s Cúchulainn team and competing in the All British Championships in London.
The Cúchulainn initiative aims to engage young people from different backgrounds into sport and promote greater understanding and respect for other cultures.
The team plan to start training in February with a number of session planned before the Blitz in April.
