The 2020 Conor McGurk Cup was officially launched last night at Queens University Playing Fields.
Ulster GAA is proud to continue its support of the hurling tournament for the third year running.
Speaking at the launch, Declan Woods, Ulster GAA PRO said:
“Conor McGurk was a leader for the sport of Hurling at Queen’s for many years and the continuation of this tournament is a fantastic legacy of his great contribution to the development of the small ball game at Queens.”
“I would like to pay tribute to Queen’s University Hurling Club who established and successfully ran the tournament as an invitational pre-University Championship / pre- County National League event to be played in the New Year at their home here in the Dub.
Hurling in Ulster had a need for a pre league competition that could give our teams the same preparation as the McKenna Cup and the Conor McGurk Cup continues to offer that.”
The 2020 Conor McGurk competition will feature nine teams who will compete across three sections.
The teams involved include Queens, Ulster University, Armagh, Antrim, Down, Fermanagh and Tyrone as well as Louth and Longford.
