Gallery: Ulster beat Dublin in historic Ravenhill game for MND awareness

'Game for Anto' is a roaring success

Conan Doherty

No sign of a blanket defence in this one.

The Ulster All-Star team beat Dublin tonight in a high-scoring classic by 2-18 to 1-19.  But that wasn’t the real story.  It wasn’t the story at all.

Anto Finnegan, the man who continues to inspire, laid on this historic spectacle at the Kingspan Stadium in Ravenhill, the home of Ulster Rugby, to raise funds and awareness for his charity deterMND.

The former Antrim player was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease two years ago but continues to work wonders in helping other people and families suffering with the condition.

The Ulster side was based primarily around the Irish News provincial All-Star selection and managed by Brian McEniff whereas Jim Gavin brought his capital city troops to Belfast for what proved to be a fantastic cause.
