The Tyrone senior and minor camogs continued their twice weekly training sessions in what will be another busy week for the County Teams. The outdoor sessions were held in Dungannon all weather facility and will continue there until the end of March. There was hail, rain and snow to greet the team as they trained hard at the Mid Ulster Sports Arena in Cookstown on Sunday. The minor and senior teams have matches on Saturday and Sunday respectively. The minor team travel on
Breffni Park for their championship match and details will be circulated later in the week. We wish the team every success against a strong Cavan side playing on their home ground at the 3G facility.
The Senior team will host Carlow at Moortown on Sunday at 1pm in what should be a mouth watering tie. It’s the second fixture of the All Ireland League Division 4 and Tyrone will be buoyed by their win against a strong Cavan side last week. There are no reported injuries and the Tyrone team have a strong panel from which to select. We hope all the hard work in training will pay off and the performance will match that shown in training. Tyrone’s Siobhan Hughes has shrugged off an injury and is now fully fit. The only slight injury worry presently concerns Cara Fitzgerald due to a slight niggle but the selectors are confident she will be fit in time for the match.
The Ulster All Star Awards will be held in April and Tyrone’s Cara Fitzgerald will be there to receive her second award in as many years.
The Tyrone under 16’s will start the defence of their Ulster shield title on St Patrick’s Day and they will host Donegal at a venue to be confirmed. Ursula Jordan will manage the team and will be assisted by Martin Donnelly and Damian Casey and we wish them all the best in their defence of the shield.
A big congratulations to Eoghan Rua of Derry on winning the All Ireland Club Intermediate Camogie final against Ardrahan of Galway on Sunday in Croke Park. Final score Eoghan Rua 2-08 Ardrahan 0-12
