Rules clash heading for Ulster

The next International Rules Test is likely to be staged in Ulster.

Casement Park is in line to host the clash of Ireland and Australia in 2013.

The Belfast venue was pipped by Limerick in the bid to stage this year's first Test, but will have a major upgrade completed in three years, making it a 40,000 all-seater stadium.

"We would love to be in a position to do it up there (in Casement Park). It was considered this time around but it just wasn't considered quite suitable enough. We needed more seats basically," said GAA Operations Manager Feargal McGill.

"It would be an absolute ambition of everyone in the GAA to have an international game staged in Belfast, or somewhere in the Six Counties."
