Comhghairdeas Tír Eoghain

20 July, 2009 - by Barry McElduff

Sinn Féin MLA for west Tyrone Barry McElduff has congratulated the Ulster championship winning Tyrone side.

Speaking today, the chair of the Assembly’s Culture, Arts and Leisure Committee said;

“Firstly I want to congratulate Tyrone on yesterday’s victory, it comes on the back of victory of the ladies team in the Ulster Championship, the Camogie victory as well as the Lory Meagher Cup victory in the hurling.

Sunday’s match displayed all the positive qualities of the Gaelic Athletic Association; family fun, sport and culture. Anyone who attended yesterday’s match will have seen a colourful and fantastic display of all three qualities.

Antrim are also worthy of genuine congratulations on their campaign during the Ulster Championships and I wish them well against the Kingdom!

The minor match displayed the continuing work going on day in and day out by volunteers throughout Ireland to make the GAA the envy of sporting organisations right across Europe.

Tyrone’s achievements will be appreciated by everyone in the county as well as right across Ireland and beyond. We wish them continuing success.

Comhghairdeas agus go n-eirí libh!” CRÍOCH
