GAA: Quartet to feature in Tr na nOg centenary

By John Campbell

Moy Tir na nOg have supplied no fewer than four players to the Tyrone senior football side this year - the Cavanagh brothers Sean and Colm, plus Philip Jordan and Ryan Mellon.

And the club are rightly proud of their status and the honours they have brought to the area.

It's hardly surprising, therefore, to learn that the quartet will be featured in the special book which is being planned to mark the club's centenary next year.

Frankie Duffy has been a Moy club dynamo for more years than he might care to remember yet his enthusiasm for what promises to be the most exciting year in the club's history is proving infectious.

"While we laud the accomplishments of our county players, we relish the joy that all the other players who have worn the Moy jersey down through the decades has brought. We are proud of our contribution to Tyrone football and we hope that this will be fully reflected in the book," maintains Frankie.

His brother Jackie played for Tyrone while near neighbour Plunkett Donaghy is a Red Hands legend.

Kevin Mallon, Therese McKearney and Colin Mackle are among those who will be helping to compile the book, Colin having served the club faithfully in a PRO role over the years, always ensuring that Moy Tir na nOg enoyed its share of the headlines.

"We would welcome any material which might be deemed suitable for the book from any quarter - cuttings, photographs, statistics or whatever. It will be returned in the same manner in which we receive it," promises Colin.

You can hardly ask for more than that!
