McANallen CD to be launced

A CD single in memory of former Tyrone star Cormac McAnallen, who passed away in March of last year, is to be launched in Dungannon tonight.

A CD single in memory of former Tyrone star Cormac McAnallen, who passed away in March of last year, is to be launched in Dungannon tonight.

The disc contains a song, written and composed by McAnallen's former Red Hands team mate Mickey Coleman, called "The Brantry Boy".

The CD, which will be launched in McAleer's Bar in Dungannon, could act as an ideal spur as Mickey Harte's Tyrone face Dublin in tomorrow's All-Ireland SFC quarter-final replay.

All proceeds from the CD will go to the Cormac Trust Fund.

Coleman, an All-Ireland SFC winner alongside the late McAnallen in 2003, said: “This song was the best thing that I felt I could do to remember Cormac and pay tribute to him. It is what I believed I needed to do.

“When I was writing the song, it was difficult to capture all Cormac did in just a few verses. I tried to express my feelings as best I could and feel that this song is a good tribute to him.”
