Commenting on the attendance of First Minister Peter Robinson MLA and Deputy First
Minister Martin McGuinness MLA MP at the Power NI McKenna Cup Final Ulster GAA President
Aogán O'Fearghail said,
“I was pleased to welcome the First Minister and deputy First
Minister to the Power NI McKenna Cup final. The attendance of the First Minister
follows a series of engagements that have taken place involving him and his officials
over the past number of years led by our Provincial Director Danny Murphy. Myself,
Danny Murphy and Tom Daly (Chairman of the Casement Park Stadium Project) first met
the First Minister last year and Ulster GAA would want to again recognise the significant
investment that the Executive under the leadership of both the First and deputy First
Ministers have committed to the Casement Park redevelopment and to many other GAA
projects. I thank them for their confidence in and support for Ulster GAA.
Association, we are committed to a shared future for all in Ireland. We outreach
to many who have had no traditional involvement with the GAA. The presence of the
First Minister at tonight's match is part of that engagement process and something
I warmly welcome.”
