Ulster GAA supporting Prostate Cancer Research

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities


Speaking at the launch of the partnership Ulster GAA President, Oliver Galligan, said: “I am delighted to choose prostate cancer research as Ulster GAA’s charitable cause for 2019. The reach of the GAA family will help to create greater awareness of the disease and help with early detection, while funds raised will go directly to world-class research being undertaken by Queen’s University Belfast.”

Dr Aidan Cole from CCRCB at Queen’s University said:

The Prostate Cancer Research Team at Queen’s is delighted to form this strategic partnership with the Ulster Council GAA to improve education, diagnosis and management of men diagnosed with prostate cancer in our communities. We are proud of our strong links with the GAA community and endeavour to provide our patients with the best treatments available and lead in clinical trials that can transform the treatment of prostate cancer in the future.

Ulster GAA will be “Supporting Prostate Cancer Research” at the Ulster Championships in 2019, and throughout 2019-2020.
