The Tyrone County committee wish to confirm that following a decision taken at last night’s County Committee meeting that Target Express will take over as the main sponsor the county’s Football and Hurling teams.
The new arrangement will see the Fermanagh based courier services firm sponsor Tyrone for the next two and a half years up until the end of the 2012 season.
Target Express have also committed themselves to sponsoring the Tyrone Club Championships in 2010.
Speaking shortly after tonight’s meeting the Tyrone County Chairman Ciaran McLaughlin said that “We are delighted to be in the position to announce this new agreement, which marks the beginning of another important step for Tyrone GAA. We look forward to an exciting and successful relationship.”
“Whilst we are very grateful to have Target Express on board for the next couple of years I would like to take this opportunity to thank our previous sponsor Rocwell.
“In particular I would like to thank Brian Quinn and the Quinn family for everything that they have done for Tyrone since 2003. Anyone associated with GAA in the county know that the Quinn family are true GAA people and their generosity over the last seven years has helped Tyrone reach the highest level. I wish Brian and the family every success with their business in the future.”
