St Paul’s GAA Club, Holywood

Last week I met with a representative from St Paul’s Gaelic Athletic Club to keep them up to date on my work and establish if I could provide any assistance in relation to any matter.

St Paul's is a busy club based in Holywood serving North Down and Ards. It plays a vital role and is a key part of the local community. I welcome their presence and am proud of their sporting achievements.

St Paul’s is open and accessible to everyone across North Down and Ards. Sport, whether it’s swimming, athletics, hockey, soccer, rugby, Gaelic football or hurling is good for the mind and body whilst also an important part of our social fabric. 


My PE Teacher once stated in my School Report that I was unable to co-ordinate my feet with my mind. I therefore prefer road running and avoid sports such as gaelic football but I appreciate the sport and support both Down and St Paul's. I wish St Paul's plus all other North Down Sporting Clubs every success in future competitions.
