World Police and Fire Games

On Wednesday afternoon, along with Dame Mary Peters, I visited a number of possible venues for the 2013 World Police and Fire Games.  We started the tour at Custom House Square in Belfast, which is being considered as the location for the Ultimate Fireman Competition, one of the highlights of the games.

We also visited the Mary Peters Track in South Belfast, Lisnagarvey Hockey Club at Hillsborough, and the Civil Service sports complex at Stormont.

At the Games the Police Service of Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and Northern Ireland Prison Service will host approximately 10,000 Law Enforcement Officers and Fire-fighters from around the world who will compete in a wide variety of sporting events.  The total number of visitors to Ulster, including partners and friends, will be around 25,000.
