The Irish News & O'Neills team up to bring art to Ulster Senior Football final

THE Irish News is set to bring an eye-catching display of colour to GAA's Ulster Senior Football final day, with a dazzling Street Art initiative ahead of the big game.

We have linked up with renowned sportswear manufacturer O'Neills to commission a dynamic piece of work from `This is Friz' artist Marian Noone ahead of the showdown between Down and Tyrone in Clones on Sunday, July 16.

Marian will depict a player each from the Down and Tyrone teams in her creative street-art style as part of the build-up to the final.

Now, we want you, our readers, to decide which two players Marian will depict.

Simply select your favourite Down and Tyrone players on before 12 noon on Friday, July 14.

Please note, you can only select one Down player and one Tyrone player each.

We will announce the two players who have received the most votes in The Irish News on Saturday, July 15 and Marian will then bring images of the stars to life in the street art graffiti she will be creating in Clones on Sunday, July 16.

If you are going to the final, make sure to take your photo in front of The Irish News and O'Neills street art.

Down will take on Tyrone in the Ulster final on July 16

"The Ulster final is a great day out for Ulster Gaels and the passion and excitement that is displayed by the fans and the players has inspired us to try and reproduce this street art," said Irish News marketing manager John Brolly.

"Hopefully, it will add to the sense of occasion that is the Ulster final." 

Kieran Kennedy of O'Neills added: "O'Neills are very proud to have the teams on the pitch and the fans in Clones on Ulster finals day wear their county O'Neills jersey with pride.

"We look forward to seeing Marian creating something special that reflects the colour of the Ulster Championship."
