Tyrone Sponsors “Target Express” Cease Trading.
The news broke yesterday that current Tyrone sponsors Target Express had ceased training with the loss of almost four hundred job across the length and breadth of Ireland. Following this announcement and subsequent press speculation the Tyrone County Board issued the following statement.
“The Tyrone County GAA Board are disappointed to learn that Target Express have been left with no other choice but to cease trading. Our thoughts are with the hundreds of people who are about to lose their jobs throughout Ireland and the management of the company. These job losses will impact on people within our own county.
Target Express had already indicated to us that they would not be renewing sponsorship of our county teams beyond the end of the 2012 season. We wish to thank Target Express for their generous sponsorship of our county teams over the last three years.
Tyrone GAA has a very robust financial management strategy and we are confident that a new sponsorship partnership will be in place before Christmas 2012.”
