Following discussions with what will be an amalgamated Council area in 2014 the Co Down Section has decided to stage the championships in Lurgan at Lurgan Park on the 15th June and in the Craigavon Borough for the next three years. While we are sad at leaving Banbridge we look forward to using Lurgan Park which is a large expansive area in the centre of Lurgan, and indeed working with the Craigavon Borough Council and local traders on these promotions.
