Mayor hails Tyrone’s ‘historic’ win over Mayo

DUP Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Graham Warke, has sent his congratulations to Tyrone’s All Ireland winning senior footballers.

Brian Dooher and Feargal Logan’s side secured Sam Maguire for a fourth time with a 2-14 to 0-15 win over a fancied Mayo side at Croke Park at the weekend.

Local man, Cathal McShane of Owen Roe O’Neill’s netted one of the goals while Ronan McNamee from Aghyaran also played a pivitol role in the win.

Mayor Warke described the win as an ‘historic achievement’ as the team were welcomed home to scenes of jubilation in Omagh and Coalisland at the weekend.

“On behalf of everyone in the city and district I would like to send my warmest congratulations to the Tyrone senior footballers for their outstanding performance in Saturday’s final,” he said.

“The win has brought joy to their thousands of supporters across the district and has given the council area a much needed lift after a testing 12 months.

“The squad have written themselves into the history books with the county’s fourth All Ireland win and I look forward to hosting an event to honour that achievement soon.”
