Sinn Fein West Tyrone MP MLA Pat Doherty has paid tribute to all associated with the Tyrone Senior and Minor football teams saying that their combined efforts and success have brought sheer elation and joy to the hearts of Tyrone Gaels in every corner of the world.

He said,

"The tremendous victory by the Tyrone seniors on Sunday, and the determined manner in which it was achieved, has brought sheer elation and joy to the hearts of Tyrone Gaels in every corner of the world. Likewise, the 'never say die attitude' of the Minors has kept the dream of the unprecedented double very much alive and I have no doubt that the success of the seniors will further inspire the minors to carry the day in the replay.

"Given the level of athleticism and physical strength needed to compete at this level, it is sometimes easy to forget that the GAA is an amateur sport and as such the unparalled commitment and selflessness that players, management and back up staff bring to the game is unique to the world of sport. They are all truly inspirational role models for our young people.

"So I would just like to pay tribute to all associated with the Tyrone Senior and Minor Football teams- For all the thrills and spills that you have treated us to throughout the season and ultimately for the massive sense of pride you have brought to the County. Go raibh míle maith agaibh uilig go léir!"
