The Belfast college are hosting the Sigerson cup this season and were keen to land one of the best forwards in the country in Murphy.Murphy has already tasted Sigerson success in 2012 with DCU when they won the final convincingly over NUI Maynooth.The new elite athlete programme ensures Murphy’s tuition fees will be paid as well as his accommodation.It will also make his commute to county training a lot easier than when he was based in Dublin. Murphy would regularly have to travel back to Donegal for training and head straight back to Dublin that night for lectures the following morning.Being based in Belfast now makes this regular commute a lot easier for Murphy.It’s clear that Murphy not only has excellence on the field of play but also academic excellence off it. MURPHY SET TO ENROLL IN NEW ELITE ATHLETE PROGRAMME AT QUEENS was last modified: August 8th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BelfastDCUMastersMichael MurphyQueens UniversitySigerson CupSports Psychologylast_img
