The 2012 Phoenix Natural Gas Ulster GAA Elite Football and Hurling Squads have competed at the highest level recently when Ulster’s footballers took on Dublin U17 side, while Ulster hurlers took on Connacht.
These matches were a follow-up to the Phoenix Natural Gas Ulster GAA Elite Academies which the young athletes attended earlier in the year at the University of Ulster in Jordanstown. The games were organized to continue the development of Ulster Elite young players.
Ulster GAA President Aogán Ó Fearghail said, “These games provided our Elite players an opportunity to play together at a very high level. This has helped continue their sporting development and we hope it will help inspire these young gifted players to remain focused on their sport and to continue their own development so that they can represent their individual counties and hopeful the province in the future.
“I take this opportunity to thank Phoenix Natural Gas for their ongoing support of our Elite Squad programme, I also thank Connacht and Dublin for participating in these games.”
