Faoi dheireadh thiar thall!!!

Finally, our Minister for Culture Art and Leisure and die-hard Glasgow Rangers supporter Gregory Campbell has announced that he will host a reception in Stormont for the victorious All-Ireland winning Tyrone Senior and Minor sides.

And about time too!!

While a firm Co an Dún supporter, I know the Ó Donnghaile Clann can trace much of their roots back to Tír Eoghain so I can heartily congratulate them on their achievements!

Fair play to my north Antrim comrade, Daithí McKay MLA who, along with Barry McElduff and Martin McGuinness kept the pressure on the Minister that the GAA (particularly All-Ireland winning sides) were as worthy as any group to be hosted at the Assembly and also recognised for their immeasurable contribution to Irish society. I spoke to Barry about this issue numerous times since the win at Croker, and he is keen to make the point that although Tír Eoghain won through the back door, they'll be very proudly entering the front door of Stormont with the Sam Maguire firmly in hand.

Maith sibh Contae Néill
