ARCH-RIVALS Tyrone and Armagh have come together to promote a special event to mark the 10th anniversary of the death of former Tyrone star Cormac McAnallen and the charity and educational work done in his memory.

The 'Cormac Trust' event will take place in Armagh City Hotel on March 21 and several of those whose lives have been changed or saved by the provision of defibrillators and cardiac screening will be among the guest speakers.

Others who have contributed to the charity work and fund-raising done in McAnallen's name – through 'Campa Chormaic' summer schemes – will be honoured at the black-tie affair.

And the event will also be used to publicise the new Cormac Trust Fellowship for post-grad research into the causes of Sudden Cardiac Death in the young.

"This event is our way of looking back on all that has been achieved over the past 10 years and thanking some of the many people who have done great things to honour Cormac's memory," said his father Brendan. Tickets for the banquet, priced at €500 per table of 10 or €50 for individuals, can be obtained from 048 37547721 or admin@thecormactrust.com
