Ulster hosts Wheelchair Hurling League Opener

June 5th, 2024

On Saturday 1st June,  Ulster GAA hosted Round one of the 2024 M.Donnelly Wheelchair hurling/camogie league in Omagh Leisure Centre.

Connacht, Leinster & Munster and their supporters, as well as members of the National GAA Wheelchair Working Group, were welcomed to the Tyrone venue by the provincial organising group.

This year’s competition is anticipated to be another close affair, with reigning league champions Ulster only claiming the the 2023 league title in the final round game with Munster. The same two sides contested the All Ireland championship final last year, with Munster taking the title after a top class game of wheelchair hurling. Both Connacht and Leinster have added new players to their squads for 2024 to add further competitiveness to the sport.

The games were played with the new extended games duration of twelve minutes per half and this helped to deliver a higher scoring average for all teams, compared to previous events. Ulster had a nervy start against Leinster, but pushed on in the final minutes to win comfortably. Munster had a good opener against Connacht and then managed a one point win over Ulster in a closely contested battle. Leinster lost out to Connacht in a very entertaining second game and to Munster in their final fixture. Ulster made it two from three in the final game against Connacht.


  • Ulster 3-2 v Leinster 2-0
  • Munster 7-2 v Connacht 3-0
  • Connacht 5-1 v Leinster 4-0
  • Ulster 2-0 v Munster 2-1
  • Munster 3-2 v Leinster 1-0
  • Ulster 3-1 v Connacht 2-0

Round two will be hosted by Munster in Limerick on the 29th June.

The Ulster squad train every Thursday 7-9pm at Mid Ulster Sports Arena in Cookstown and new members are always very welcome. Players must be over 15 years of age to join up and all equipment is supplied, including sports chair.
