It’s a big Sunday football-wise, with the county team making a second effort to kick-start their league campaign when the travel to Omagh to face Tyrone while Kiltane are aiming to cap their great Intermediate championship run with All-Ireland victory when they take on Truagh Gaels of Monaghan at Croke Park.
A few bits of info about Sunday’s game in Omagh. The first is that the ref for this one is Armagh’s Padraig Hughes whom we last came across in our opening league match against Kerry just over a year ago.
The second is that Club ’51 have confirmed details of their pre-match meet-up in Omagh on Sunday. There was a great crowd at the meet-up in Newbridge last Sunday and hopefully there’ll be another good gathering at the Silver Birch Hotel in Omagh (details here) this coming Sunday ahead of throw-in at Healy Park.
I’m not 100% sure yet if I’ll be making the trip North on Sunday – I think I will but I’m not absolutely certain just yet – but if I do I’ll definitely be heading to the Silver Birches beforehand so maybe we should all bring our name badges with us.
By the way, the match in Healy Park won’t be the only Mayo/Tyrone meeting on Sunday as there’s also an U21 challenge match between the counties earlier that day. This match is scheduled for the Tyrone Centre of Excellence in Garvaghy where throw-in is set for 11.30 that morning.
