Ulster GAA President Martin McAviney congratulated John McAreavy and Ryan Feeney, saying:
“I am delighted that Ulster GAA has again for the second year been successful in the CIM Awards, beating off stiff competition from a range of multi-national businesses and massive publicly funded projects.
Working alongside the Michaela Foundation we hosted an outstanding event last November in the Match for Michaela and it was fitting that almost exactly one year after the event the work of the team was recognised. Ulster GAA were also proud that our Head of Strategy and Public Affairs Ryan Feeney was recognised for his hard work and dedication by winning the overall CIM Marketing Leadership award. It was a very special night for both Ulster GAA and the Michaela Foundation.”
