In Pictures: Armagh and Tyrone play out pre-Christmas cracker in James Reel Play Park fundraiser

Athletic Grounds Armagh

While it may not have been the red hot encounter often associated with Ulster’s biggest rivals, Armagh and Tyrone still played out a Christmas cracker at the Athletic Grounds on Friday night.

Almost 5,000 people turned out to the game which was being played in aid of the James Reel Play Park fundraiser – in memory of the Silverbridge man who died suddenly in April of this year.

Fireworks brought the curtain down on a tremendous family-fun event which saw reigning All-Ireland champions Tyrone edge the hosts by 0-19 to 0-16. The result – under the lights in December – was secondary to the occasion.
