I remember we didn’t do to well in the minor league that year. We didn’t qualify for the knock out stages anyway. We prepared well for the championship and had a tough game against Down in Clones. I remember Paul scored a point that day playing left half forward. It was very tough conditions, very wet but we managed to win. Up next was Armagh a game no-one in Tyrone will forget, the weather was the opposite of our last outing. I remember during the kick-about behind the fire station in Omagh I did some calf stretches with Paul.

My first memory of Paul Mc Girr was when the Tyrone vocational schools team played against Fermanagh vocational schools in the Ulster vocational final in early 1997. I remember some of the boys who knew him from before and saying how good a player he was! I just thought it was strange a Tyrone man playing against his county for Fermanagh!

Paul Mc Girr was a typical 18 year old, exuberant and full of the joys of life and he loved nothing more than spending time with his family and wide circle of friends. He was an avid sports fan, having played numerous sports, most notably Gaelic Football, and partook in a Leisure Studies course at Fermanagh College of Further Education.

Paul was a native of Garvaghy, Ballygawley, with whom he played club football until his family moved to Dromore in 1992. He then began a successful club career as a talented forward with Dromore St Dympna’s.
