ClubCall: What's happening around the clubs in Ulster this week

Tyrone Ladies: On the back of winning their third successive Ulster intermediate championship title at the weekend Tyrone ladies have launched their first major Golf classic with the support of main sponsors McAleer and Rushe. The major fundraiser is set to boost the coffers of all aspects of ladies football in the county and goes ahead at Omagh golf club on July 20. Tee times for the fourball are now available and entry for teams, priced at £160, is also being accepted. Pictured at the launch are Tyrone youth players Maeve McCrystal and Ellis Keenan, senior player Grainne Rafferty, county chairperson Donna McCrory, and representing McAleer and Rushe are Bridget O'Donnell, Margaret Conway, Avril Marshall and Julie Sweeney.



DERRYLAUGHAN KEVIN BARRY'S: The big night arrives tomorrow (Friday) as the legends of the 2002 All-Ireland winning Armagh team and the Tyrone team that took their crown the following year meet in a legends game in Derrylaughan. After months of hard graft in organising the event, plans had to be altered because of the involvement of both Tyrone and Armagh in the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers. The game was brought forward by a day. Sam Maguire will be in attendance along with a stellar list of footballers and hurlers that will take part in a Question of Sport after the game – namely Anthony Daly, Ollie Baker, Diarmuid O'Sullivan, Peter Canavan, Ger Houlihan and Enda Muldoon. The match itself will be refereed by Brian White and John Bannon, who will be hoping the pace and needle of their classic encounters in the early 2000s remains firmly absent this weekend.
