Ulster GAA Building Good Relations

June 3rd, 2011

Ulster GAA recently held its first ever Good Relation Forum in the Navan Centre in Armagh to celebrate Good Relations Week.

The event targeted local government representative including council officers, elected councillors, local District Policing Partnerships, MLAs and other interested statutory organisations.

The event provided a platform to raise awareness of the work of Ulster GAA across a range of programme areas including community capacity building, community relations, improving local partnerships and health, wellbeing and social initiatives.

Keynote speakers at the forum included Ryan Feeney who provided an overview of the work of Ulster GAA, Dr Eugene Young gave a presentation on Games Participation and John Devaney dealt with culture and heritage.

There was a large turn-out for the event, which included a lot of people from non-GAA backgrounds, so the Forum was very important in building Good Relations and promoting the work of the GAA across the nine counties of Ulster.
