Handballers launch new jersey sponsored by Tyrone Attic Stairs…

Team Talk Mag

There’s a huge weekend of handball ahead all over the country, and Tyrone will be involved in an incredible total of 23 big matches, including 14 Ulster juvenile finals in Kingscourt this Saturday, and 9 All-Ireland (adult) singles semi-finals at various Ulster and Munster venues.
The Tyrone GAA Handball committee launched their new county jersey in Beragh last night and there was a great turnout which included Tyrone GAA chairman Ciaran McLaughlin.
The new jersey, which is sponsored by Kevin McCrystal from Tyrone Attic Stairs, who hails from a family steeped in handball history, will be available for Tyrone players to wear in tomorrow’s 2013 Ulster juvenile championship finals, which are scheduled to get underway at 10.30am.
Tyrone will be represented in more than half of the finals, with representation in seven out of 12 boys finals and seven girls finals.
The jersey will also be worn this weekend by the county’s nine Ulster adult singles champions, who will all be on All-Ireland semi-final duty between this evening (Friday) and Sunday afternoon, with some travelling to far away venues such as Tipperary, Limerick and Cork.
Gabhainn McCrystal will have the honour of being the first player to officially don the new gear when he faces Clare’s Colin Crehan in an attractive All-Ireland minor championship semi-final in Beragh this evening at 6pm. This will be the first of six weekend semi-finals split between Beragh and Loughmacrory.
These are unquestionably very exciting times for GAA handball in Tyrone and the county handball committee will hope that the new jersey brings the Tyrone squad good luck for this weekend and for the rest of the season.
