(Oldest Posts First)

A fitting tribute having the current All Ireland champions in Omagh on the 9th Anniversary of Cormacs passing , I hope the crowed respond in a fitting way to remember this Great young lad . R.I.P Cormac gone but never forgotten.

I think the best thing that can happen on Sunday is if Donegal hammer Tyrone. It will stop all this jumping up and down at the moment and it would do our chances in May against them the world of good.

Or maybe I just want The Irish New to stop hyping Tyrone as they always do which at this stage is very tedious!

Cormac was a legend that all of Ulster not just Tyrone looked up too !! God's what Tyrone would have won if he had lived . His final display for the red hand was against Donegal in Mckenna cup final and i remember thinking that Tyrone would go on to win back to back with ease . He was such a true leader !

Nice words about Cormac there Hugh, much appreciated from a fellow Gael and i'm sure every Gael in Tyrone.

I was at that McKenna Cup final in Ballybofey and honestly thought I'd be seeing Cormac lift Sam that September; Sadly it wasn't to be be with his sudden passing.
I will never forget our next game against Mayo who gained my Respect forever, with all their banners throughout their towns & villages in support with their fellow Gael's, on the tragic passing of the legend that is Cormac McAnallen.

Tyrone fought on bravely that season, we retired the number 3 Jersey in respect to Cormac.
Football mattered little to us for the rest of that year, In life some things are more important than football.

Could Tyrone have won back to back All Ireland's or even Three In A Row? We'll never know now, but personally I felt with our problem Full Back position being filled by Cormac, we could have did just that.

I was in castlebar that day too. There was a minutes silence and many tears shed in that minute. The ball was threw in and fair play to Mayo, they tore into us like we were their worst enemy, the healing process had begun. I have alway respected Mayo for that!!

RIP - Cormac - hard to believe it is 9 years. I remember being on the school bus when news broke on the radio and everybody fell silent. I was at a very sad funeral over the weekend, a neighbour who was a 16 year old boy who lost a two year battle with cancer. He was a great football talent and could kick with both feet. He was going to be a Mayo star in the future.

What I am getting at here is, life is cruel and life is short. We should all savour and enjoy it while we can. RIP Cian and Cormac.

Well said Yewtree - poor family and friends devastating for them.
As others have said on other threads I remember the tributes and masses in Mayo at the time very classy. Wish some of your other county posters showed the same.

Have to agree with Mickey Harte's views regarding the overly negative coverage from some 'journalists' on the tyrone donegal game. Having watched the game on TG4 i couldn't believe the BBC news report on the game which mentioned 'the brawl' which ensued after the penalty. This incident was not a brawl by any stretch of the imagination. Not a punch was thrown. Would the BBC have described a similar incident in either a rugby or soccer game as a brawl? I don't think so. While i agree we could do more to promote our own sport, the BBC and others should also refrain from 'putting the boot in'.
