So Round 2 of the Allianz National Football League is nearly upon us already, and after a pulsating contest in Newbridge on Sunday last, we have another mouthwatering clash in store this weekend as we head for Omagh to take on Mickey Harte’s Red Hands. (That sounds a bit wrong, doesn’t it?) Get ready for another competitive clash – it’s Tyrone v Mayo time.
Anyway, Mayo Mick has suggested the Silverbirch Hotel in Omagh as a meeting point before the game. It’s located on the main Omagh to Gortin Road, on the way to Healy Park on the right hand side and has a large car park. From there it’s about half a mile, or a 10-minute walk to the ground. Parking near the ground is scant and is usually roadside.
There’ll be a few of the Club ’51 crew in the hotel from about 12pm getting the tea and sangwiches in prior to throw-in. Anyone interested in joining us to make some noise in Healy Park, the plan is to congregate in the Silverbirch and head down to the game in good time to get a spot.
So do join us, bring a flag or two, and help us to get #SeaofGreenAndRed off to an early start this year! Safe travels to all of you making the trip – and of course to those of you heading towards Croke Park to cheer on Kiltane – we’ll be there in spirit.
Anyone interested in car pooling – either looking for or offering a lift, if you’ve signed up as a member of the site, head here. If you can’t access this, drop us a line and we’ll sort you out.
