All eyes will be on the Tyrone senior team when they play their first Irish Daily Star All Ireland League Division 4 match against Wicklow on Sunday 24th February. The team has been training hard with a very strong panel represented by the majority of the clubs within the county. It will be a first for the Tyrone team with their new sponsored jerseys by O’Neills and Hunky Dorys. The preparations were bolstered by a training session at Dungannon’s new ball wall and in the same week there was a friendly against Keady. It was a fiercely competitive match that saw the red hands take a narrow win by two points with a brace of goals from Oonagh O’Neill and some superb points from Maria Jordan.
Tyrone county manager Dean McParland said about the up and coming League fixtures – ”I’m looking forward to the new season with our new look team. Contention for places this year has never been so intense. We hope with the new sponsors on board that this will be a rewarding year for all involved at Tyrone camogie”.
Tyrone had a convincing win over Wicklow in this fixture last year but the team will be taking nothing for granted despite the home advantage. The team will be announced later in the week as will the venue and it is without doubt the strongest team for many a year.
