Ulster GAA President’s Awards 2014 Winners

November 10th, 2014


The annual Ulster GAA President’s Awards took place in the Hilton Hotel Templepatrick on Saturday 8th November.

This awards ceremony recognises the Players, Administrators, Coaches, Officials, Referees, and Team Managements for the significant contribution they make to the GAA. Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the GAA and are the very heartbeat of our communities. All the award winners represent the many more who also carry on this valuable work across the nine Ulster counties.
