McNulty welcomes Maghaberry GAA coaching skills course

SDLP Communities, Reconciliation and Sports Spokesperson Justin McNulty MLA has welcomed a new initiative enabling prisoners to complete the GAA Foundation Award course during their time in Maghaberry jail.

The MLA for Newry and Armagh commented:

 

“This is a fantastic initiative that will give prisoners the opportunity to learn new skills, develop an appetite for volunteering and will assist in the rehabilitation process.”

 

“Inclusiveness, sportsmanship and fairness are all central tenets of Gaelic games and it is my hope that this ethos can permeate positively into the life of the prison through this project.”

 

“The GAA in Ulster must be applauded for their innovative and wide-ranging approach in promoting and encouraging participation.”
