Ulster Sports Museum Exhibition at Town Hall

The Ulster Sports Museum Exhibition which tells the story of the great sporting achievements of Ulster men and women on the international and national stages, is on display in Ballymoney Town Hall for just two more weeks.

It features many sports stars across the disciplines from boxing to GAA, soccer to rugby and motor sports to Paralympics and celebrates past champions such as Mary Peters, George Best, Alex Higgins and Joey Dunlop while also celebrating the triumphs of Rory McIlroy, Wendy Houvenaghel and other heroes of today.

To add a local element to the main body of the Ulster Sports Museum Exhibition, Ballymoney Museum and Sports Development staff have created an exhibition which highlights the exceptional individuals who have been inducted into Ballymoney Sports Advisory Committee’s Hall of Fame. The exhibition spans the years 2000-2010 and includes sporting heroes from the world of hurling, rugby, motorsports, cycling, bowling, football and hockey.

The exhibition which has been supported by Camelot, DSD and the Ulster Bank, certainly provides inspiration and an opportunity to reflect and reminisce about the tremendous impact made by Ulster’s sports stars over the years. It includes archival film footage of great moments in sport as well as providing an opportunity to express your own view. It is on display in Ballymoney Town Hall until Thursday 14 July and admission is free. Opening hours are Monday – Thursday and Saturday 9am-5pm and Friday 9am-4.30pm.
