UU students threw in the ball for the launch of this new Ulster Championship initiative alongside Liam McMullen (Irish News IT manager), Jim Lowther (head of UU School of Sport), Thomas Hawkins (Irish News sports editor) and John Brolly (Irish News marketing manager) 

The Irish News and Ulster University School of Sport have teamed up to provide in-depth GAA match stats on during the 2016 Ulster Championship.

The link-up aims to bring the very best in GAA reporting and statistical match analysis.

Irish News sports reporters will be live blogging all the action from all the Ulster Championship games.

Alongside this, a team of UU School of Sport students will be collating all the stats from the individual games and compiling half-time, full-time and full match stats panels for instant viewing on

The initiative kicks off this weekend with live blog and in-depth analysis panels during Sunday’s Fermanagh v Antrim clash at Brewster Park in Enniskillen.

And we follow that up with all the reaction, reports and ratings plus a full match analysis graphic in Monday's Irish News.
