Police Service to make history
May 20, 2007
The Police Service of Northern Ireland will make history next week when their team of Gaelic footballers takes part in an official GAA competition for the first time.
The PSNI side will take part in the Antrim Inter-Firms League on Thursday next.
"This was first muted when Sean Kelly was GAA president and it has taken quite a bit of time to put the arrangements in place," said Superintendent Gerry Murray.
"There is no doubt that the new political dispensation has made this more possible than would have been the case.
"The GAA and the Ulster Council have been very supportive.
"A number of the PSNI players are also lining out with their clubs and we have played a number of challenge games.
"But the opposition sides understandably wanted to keep things discreet."
