The Tyrone Health and Wellbeing Committee is organising a coach trip to Dublin and a tour of the Croke Park stadium as its latest social initiative.
The outing, which is being supported by the Red Cross, is available to those aged 60 or over, male and female, and is aimed at providing those participating with an opportunity to escape the routine of everyday life, socialise and enjoy each others’ company on a relaxed day trip.
The highlight of the event will be a guided tour of the iconic Croke Park, one of the world’s finest sporting stadiums.
The group will be taken on a tour of all parts of the stadium, and will be able to re-trace the steps of the legendary Tyrone teams of 2003, ’05 and ’08, who famously won three All-Ireland titles on the hallowed turf.
A fascinating insight into the running of Croke Park, along with an informative commentary on its history, will be provided.
A visit to the GAA Museum is also included in the itinerary, and a meal will be served in one of the corporate suites at the conclusion of the tour.
The trip takes place on Saturday 14th November, and costs £5 per person.
Seats can be booked by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or (028) 8556 7723.
