Tyrone GAA has confirmed the postponement of all this weekend’s fixtures as a mark of respect to the late Damian Casey.

Widely regarded as the county’s greatest ever hurler, Damian died tragically after an accident in a swimming in Spain last Friday.

Just 29 years old, his funeral is set to take place this Sunday at 2pm at St Patrick’s Church, Dungannon. 

“A Chara, as a mark of respect to our friend Damian Casey, the CCC are postponing all games in the County this weekend”, read a Tyrone GAA statement.

“The Senior/Reserve ACL games on Friday/Saturday & the U17/19 games on Sunday are off this weekend will be re-fixed with a double round of fixtures later in the summer.”
