Officially launching the conference Ulster GAA President, Ciaran McLaughlin, said: “Our clubs are at the forefront of developing our association in every townland and parish across Ulster. The work of our volunteers is extraordinary and this conference, supported by the Bank of Ireland, is a celebration of those members and their tireless work.

“We can learn much from each other, and this event is an ideal opportunity to explore club planning to ensure our GAA units are sustainable long into the future...

“We are delighted to have visited a number of outstanding clubs across these themes and the event will showcase short videos from St Peter’s Warrenpoint, Kildress Wolfe Tones, Buncrana and Clan na Gael, Lurgan, which illustrate how these clubs are setting high standards. Through a panel discussion, we will explore how your club can implement measures to also excel.”

The conference will take place online from 9:15am to 1pm, and free registration is now open. Full information, including a conference schedule, and registration can be found by visiting: ulster.gaa.ie/conferences2022/
