More than 600 young children recently took prt in the inaugural Irwin’s Bakery Ulster GAA Easter Camps during the holiday period.
The kids ages 9 to 11 attended the two–day camps which were held at nine venues across Antrim, Derry–Londonderry, Tyrone, Down, Donegal, Armagh, Cavan and Fermanagh.
The Coaching Camps, which mark the beginning of a new partnership between Ulster GAA and Irwinn’s, saw young athletes receive expert coaching from Ulster GAA, which included hurling and football skills training – as well as a focus on developing other sporting and life skills in a fun–filled environment.
“It was great to see so many kids spending two days of their Easter Holidays on the pitch working on new skills and staying active,” said Michael Hassan, President, Ulster GAA.
“I know both the children and the coaches really enjoyed it and I hope that we have inspired some future GAA stars!”
