125 Years Ago … To the Day!

By tyronepro Mon 5th Oct

Next Monday, 12 October, is 125 years to the day of the meeting of Tyrone (represented by Cookstown) and Armagh (represented by Armagh Harps) at Blaris, Lisburn – close to the modern Sprucefield complex – in the second-ever Ulster SFC Final.
That 1890 meeting at Blaris was Tyrone’s first Ulster Final (and it took us another 43 years to get to another one!) so it’s got a real historical significance for us as a County. The fact that it delivered Armagh’s first SFC title also means it’s got huge significance for The Orchard.
To mark the event (and supported by the Fermanagh and Omagh Council) Dr Dónal McAnallen will deliver a talk on the game and the times/settings it took place in next Monday night (12 October) at Garvaghey at 8.15pm. We’ll also provide a cup of tea and engage in a bit of ‘across-the-Blackwater’ networking. Come along to find out a bit more about Tyrone’s Gaelic heritage.
