Wheelchair Hurling provides an outlet for those in wheelchairs to play and compete in a competitive environment representing their province. The National Lottery funding for the programme, through the Sport NI Active Clubs programme, allowed two co-ordinators to introduce and develop the sport, provide wheelchairs and hire fully accessible sports facilities for the athletes.
