Tyrone Fabrication to succeed McAleer and Rushe as Tyrone GAA sponsors
IT is understood that Tyrone GAA's partnership with main sponsors McAleer and Rushe has come to an end.
The Irish News understands that Ballygawley-based manufacturers Tyrone Fabrication will be announced as the new title sponsors.
Tyrone Fabrication are a leading company who specialise in producing a wide range of advanced steel equipment enclosures for the transportation, communications and power supply industries.
Their website says they ``are able to work on everything from single, bespoke designs to multinational network systems.
``Established in 1992, Tyrone Fabrication is a rapidly expanding provider of complete turnkey enclosure solutions.''
In December 2014, McAleer and Rushe agreed a two-year title sponsorship deal and extended it to a third year last November.
During that time, Tyrone won two Ulster Senior titles, All-Ireland’s at U21 and U17 level as well as Division Two of the National League.
The county has had a number of sponsors since their long-term association with WJ Dolan, who replaced Powerscreen, ended in 2004.
Rocwell, owned by the Quinn family, were next to strike a deal and were the sponsors for the county’s All-Ireland successes in both 2005 and 2008.
Target Express came on board in May 2010 but opted not to renew their deal after the 2012 season.
Hunky Dory’s then agreed a two-year deal for the 2013 and ’14 seasons but opted against an optional third year, paving the way for McAleer and Rushe’s involvement.
