The Irish Ice Hockey Association (IIHA) and the Junior Belfast Giants hosted over 30 girl’s for the Girls Hockey Day on Saturday 22nd October 2016 at the SSE Arena, Belfast. The Day was in support of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Girls Ice Hockey Weekend and also conducted to promote to wonderful sport of ice hockey in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The IIHA Women’s Hockey Coordinator, Sonya Nic Aonaigh and the Belfast Junior Giants Girls Manager, Kate Morrison worked very closely together to bring the event to the SSE Arena. The on ice session was conducted by Mark Morrison and Rob Stewart; 2 very well known personalities from the Belfast Giants ice hockey team and in Mark’s case also from his participation as a senior player with Team Ireland. Thank you gentlemen.

The IIHA would like to thank everyone who attended on the day, the support team of volunteers who looked after every need in the SSE Arena and to Ice Hockey UK for their assistance and support to this worthwhile day.
