Cuchulainn Initiative: Lurgan Cuchulainns Celebration Event
A group of girls from Lurgan created lifetime memories in July when, as part of their involvement in Ulster GAA’s Cúchulainn Initiative, they travelled to London to represent their schools and town in the All-Britain Competition (ABC Games).
The Cúchulainn Initiative is Ulster GAA’s flagship cross community programme which brings together young people from different community backgrounds through Gaelic Games. The Lurgan Cúchulainn’s, consisting of girls from Lurgan Junior High School, Brownlow Integrated College, and St Ronan’s College, took part in the U16 Girls Competition. Despite being a team made-up of players who had little or no experience playing Gaelic games, the group represented themselves with distinction showing some incredible skills, passion, and teamwork as they came up against established clubs in Britain.
In recognition of their engagement in this programme the group will be hosted for a reception with the Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council on Tuesday 19th September.
Please note this event is invitation only.
