Connacht GAA to host Sigerson Finals weekend

The Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence in Bekan

Connacht GAA will make another slice of history next February when it becomes the first non-third level institution to host the famed 2017 Independent.ie HE GAA Sigerson Championship weekend.

The Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence in Bekan, between Ballyhaunis and Knock, will host the premier third level Gaelic Football competition over the weekend of February 17 & 18, next year following on from hosting the National Feile Peil na nOg two years ago.

It will be first time that the weekend has been hosted by anyone other than a third level institute but the volunteers for the weekend will be drawn from students attending the third level institutes within the province - NUIG, the GMIT colleges, Sligo IT & Westport CFE.

With five grass pitches, one 4G pitch and eight dressing rooms as well as ample parking, the Connacht GAA Centre is an ideal venue for the Finals weekend.
