Tyrone stars urge support for charity concert

Strabane's traditional music group, CRAIC, had the chance this week to meet Tyrone GAA manager, Mickey Harte, and some of the All-Ireland winning players at Strabane's district council offices.
During the event, the local band spoke about their forthcoming charity performance at the Alley Theatre, Strabane, in aid of health awareness charity, Cardiac Risk in the Young.
This hardworking charity aims to raise awareness amongst young people and parents about the need for cardiac screening, especially among children taking part in sport.
Endorsing the event on November 14, members of the Tyrone GAA seniors also urged all of the Tyrone fans to come out in force and support this show.
"It was a great honour to meet the Tyrone manager and the players, and they wished us the very best of luck for our forthcoming charity event at the Alley Theatre," Paul McCosker from CRAIC said.
"The CRAIC performance starts at 8pm, with some special guests expected to arrive. However, it's top secret at the moment. We also hope to have a fantastic raffle prize on offer, which money simply cannot buy. The raffle will only be available on the night to patrons booking tickets for the show, so book now at the Alley on (028) 7 384444."
Nathan Flatman, from the Alley Theatre, added: "CRAIC are back again at the Alley after the success of Johnny Crampsie Festival, this time in aid of a wonderful charity aimed at helping young people within our own community. All money raised on the night will go towards Northern Ireland projects, thanks to the kind sponsorship of Supervalu of Strabane and the Strabane Weekly News.
"The night will start at 7pm with great food on offer and then the concert will start at 8pm. Featuring the very best in traditional music, this will be a great night out for all music fans. If you have never seen CRAIC perform before then this is a unique chance to catch this wonderful band on show at the intimate Alley Theatre."
