Ulster GAA has today launched it 2012 Ulster Hurling Championship Finals Day at the University of Ulster at Jordanstown.
The 2012 Ulster Hurling Championship Finals Day will take place on Sunday 8th July 2012 from 1:30pm in Casement Park, Belfast with Down Minors taking on Antrim in the curtain raiser followed by Derry and Antrim in the Senior game.
Speaking at the launch today, Ulster GAA Treasurer Michael Hasson said, “Hurling in Ulster continues to develop with a lot of hard work taking place in schools, clubs and counties and that is reflective in the exciting and good quality Championship we’ve seen so far. It’s also seen in the recent successes of Armagh and Tyrone who lifted the Nicky Rackard and the Lory Meagher Cup. Congratulations to both teams and management teams.
“Yesterday Derry booked their place in the final after beating Down 0-24 to 0-13 – that’s an impressive score line and bodes well for the final on Sunday.
“Final day is a great celebration of hurling within Ulster and will throw in with the Ulster Minor Hurling Championship Final with Down up against Antrim at 1:30pm before the main event at 3:30pm with Derry up against the mighty Antrim in the Senior Hurling Final.
“Admission into the Casement Park on Sunday is payable at the gate with all U16s going free so it’s sure to a be a great family day out. Nothing beats being there!”
