Game of Three Halves


On Tuesday the 22nd of May Omagh CBS Coolnaguard Sports Pavillion hosted the ‘Game of Three Halves’ initiative aimed at bringing young people together through their shared love of sport.

In partnership with Ulster Rugby, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), and the Irish Football Association (IFA), pupils from Omagh CBS and the Loreto Grammar school Omagh undertook coaching in three of Northern Ireland’s most popular sports – rugby, football, and Gaelic football.

Each sport brings its own unique contribution to the Game of 3 Halves programme, and despite all three sports having their own specific values and philosophies, they all have one common vision – to bring sports into new communities and allow every child in Ulster to experience all three games.

In glorious weather the pupils enjoyed a fun filled and action packed morning in the various sporting disciplines. Many thanks to IFA coach Dan Chambers, Ulster Gaa coach Proinsias O’Kane and Ulster Rugby coach Davey Brown.
