McGuinness writes to Campbell seeking Tyrone reception

22 September, 2008


Sinn Féin MP for Mid-Ulster and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has today written to the DCAL Minister Gregory Campbell seeking him to organise a Stormont reception for the victorious Tyrone Senior football team.

Mr McGuinness said:

"Yesterdays famous win in Croke Park was Tyrone's third All-Ireland in six years. It is a truly remarkable achievement for Mickey Harte and the Tyrone panel. It deserves to be marked with a Stormont reception.

"I have today written to the DCAL Minister Gregory Campbell seeking him to organise such a reception on behalf of the Assembly and executive and host the winning squad along with Sam in the very near future." ENDS
