Schools Cup sports reception at Stormont

Last night I hosted a reception at Stormont for four schools which had won sports trophies, with all of the finals around St Patrick's Day.  The schools were Ballymena Academy (rugby), Banbridge Academy (hockey), De La Salle from West Belfast (football) and St Colman's in Newry (Gaelic football).

When I was speaking at the reception I drew attention to our priorities for sport, which are around participation, performances and places - increasing access and participation, helping athletes to improve their performances and be the best they can be, and providing the places or facilities that meet the strategic needs of the sports.
