Tyrone ladies remember Sean

By Paddy Wed 27th Mar

The Tyrone ladies face Donegal in their penultimate national league game at Fr Hackett Park Augher on Saturday.
The  game is part of a big weekend in memory of Sean McElroy who passed away last Summer. The host club St Macartans have pulled out the stops to remember Sean.  Described as a great club member, manager and friend, Sean was the first ever manager of St. Macartans ladies when the club was formed in 1992, he also managed at inter county level. A special memorial match is planned as the precursor to the vital national league clash St Macartans welcome St Eunans, One of Sean’s proudest moments was managing the U14 team to the All Ireland Féile competition in 2010. The 2010 U14 team have now progressed to minor level and  St Macartans welcome their hosts from that momentous occasion St Eunans.
Sean’s wife Bridie and the McElroy Family will be at the double bill at the weekend. Bridie has kindly donated the Sean McEroy memorial trophy for the U16 player of the year to the Club. This will be presented by Bridie to the 2012 U16 player of the year at the end of Saturdays game. Sean was partof the U16 management in 2012 and a few weeks after his sad passing the girls done him proud by securing the Elaine Treanor memorial U16 league shield for the third year in a row.
A new look Tyrone minor squad embark on the defence of the Ulster title against Donegal on Monday April 1st with Cavan up next in a competitive Ulster championship campaign. Managers Paddy Fox and Malachy Coyle have been impressed with the work rate shown and the overall build up has been good for Tyrone who are aiming for three in a row of titles.
It is however a very changed team and has a very youthful look about it, Donegal are bolstered by a slightly older core of players and Mondays test away from home could well be a tricky one for the champions and beaten all Ireland finalists.
