The 21 year old Tyrone captain has proven to be one of the leading hurlers in Ulster this national league campaign with his scoring exploits, a total of 1-57 in the division 3A campaign, key to Tyrone’s success in winning the competition last weekend. Casey who is studying accountancy received the award at McAleers in Dungannon on Tuesday past from Ulster GAAWA chairman John Martin with County chairperson Roisin Jordan and Eoghan Ruadh chairman Tomas Colton also in attendance.
It was a memorable occasion for the talisman hurler as he was joined by family members and fellow Dungannon teammates at the presentation. Casey, who has now captained Tyrone to the Nicky Rackard cup and two national league titles in the past year was delighted with the award saying it was the perfect way to wrap up a memorable week.By tyronepro Thu 9th Apr
