The Ulster Minor Club Football Championship (Irish: Comórtas Pheil Mhionúr Chumann Uladh), sometimes known as the St. Paul's Tournament, is an annual gaelic football tournament played between the hundreds of minor club teams in Ulster.
Minor club championships are held in each of the nine counties of Ulster. The nine county winners play each other in the Ulster Club Championship in a knock-out format.
The 2016 winners were Burren of County Down who defeated Kilrea of Derry.
The tournament is organised and hosted by St. Paul's GAC, from Belfast. While unofficial, it is regarded as the Ulster Club Championship for club minor teams. It began in 1982 and the Jimmy McConville cup has been presented since 1983. The competition usually begins at the end of November with the final taking place in January, typically on New Year's Day (e.g. the 2016 final took place on 1 January 2017).
