Throughout the last seven years, we have had the privilege of manufacturing commemorative jerseys for remarkable people that our communities have sadly lost.
Triona Mc Nabb
Triona Mc Nabb was a loving, friendly, and passionate Dromore Gael who was central to the activities of Dromore LGFA and the within the wider Dromore community. She represented the GAA club at underage and senior level and was eventually part of the club development activities. Triona was a well-known figure around the village and carried a big smile wherever she was seen. She made time for everyone she met. Triona sadly passed away in February 2017. She is remembered fondly by her family, friends, and members of the local community and beyond. The jersey captures everything that was dear to her on the sporting field and was recently widely on show in Gardrum Park in Dromore during the ‘Tournament for Triona’, which saw dozens of young girls partaking in an underage competition.
Brian Óg Maguire
Brian Óg, or ‘Ógie’ as he was known to many was a leading figure within the Lisnaskea community in county Fermanagh. Ógie was a stalwart part of the Lisnaskea Emmetts, having represented the club at all levels throughout his life and was the captain of the All-Ireland winning IFC team in 2011. A jovial, laid-back, and enjoyable character, Brian Óg took life in his stride and always had a big smile and hearty laugh wherever he appeared. Brian Óg sadly lost his life in September 2012 after a fatal accident at his workplace. His sudden passing was shocking for his family, friends, and the local and wider community. Each year, the ‘Ógie 7’s’ tournament takes place in Lisnaskea, which sees GAA teams coming from far and wide to take part. The jersey, which sports his beloved number 8, is showcased throughout the community all-year round, and is front & centre of the annual competition each year.
Paul Mc Girr
Paul Mc Girr was only 18 years old when he was fatally injured during a GAA match in Omagh. Paul was representing Tyrone in a minor championship game against Armagh when he collided with another player. Paul was a fierce competitor and had risen through the footballing ranks with Dromore and Tyrone GAA. His youthful energy and application were recognised by all around the village of Dromore, with many children looking up to Paul as someone they aspired towards. Although Paul was taken at such an early stage in his life, his spirit lives on within the wider GAA community. Each year, the ‘Paul Mc Girr’ tournament takes place in Dromore, which sees the U-16 winners of each Ulster County battle it out to be declared an Ulster Champion. This prestigious tournament has seen some fantastic youth players on show, many of whom now represent their clubs and counties at senior level. This jersey captures the meaning of the Spirit of Paul and sports the charity crest named after him which helps bring aid to Zambian families most in need of it.
