Farrell eyes Inter-provincial games

Ulster Council president Aogan Farrell has pledged to do all he can to revive the Inter-provincial series.

The competitions were not played this year, and the fact that they have not been included in the national fixtures programme for 2011 has prompted speculation that the GAA plans to kill off the famous Railway Cup.

Ulster's footballers lead the way in the roll of honour, with 29 titles, and are the holders, having won the last of the overseas deciders, in Ruislip in 2009.

"I certainly will be hoping to make sure that the Inter-provincial series is re-invigorated.

"There has to be a serious look taken at it, but I certainly know, and I don't say this personally, I say this as president of the Ulster Council that we're very, very supportive of it, and want to see it brought back to life," he said.
