'No (sporting) organisation has been made a greater contribution to the city than the GAA' - Lord Mayor of Belfast Máirtín Ó Muilleoir speaking at the launch of the 2013 Ulster Minor Club Tournament in Belfast City Hall.
The Mayor welcomed representatives from the nine county champions and officials from host club St Paul's who have been organising the Christmas competition every year since the early 1980s.
'The GAA is about community and Belfast needs it's community uplifted so I'm delighted to see one of the showcase events in Ulster, played in the darkness of December and on New Year's Day, return. St Paul's is a legendary club and I have great respect for Brian Coyle who got teams to come to Belfast when it wasn't easy to do so'.
Defending champions Watty Grahams (Derry) were drawn against Buncrana in this year's Tournament, which will begin in December. Video production will be supplied by Jerome Quinn Media via Twitter @JeromeQuinn
