Tyrone GAA Senior Team are Buddies to Children with Cerebral Palsy

Tyrone GAA Senior Team

The children, parents and all associated with the Buddy Bear School for children with cerebral palsy joins with all in the County and elsewhere in wishing the Minor and Senior Tyrone GAA Teams every success in the All Ireland Finals on Sunday.

" We are delighted that manager Mickey Harte and the inspirational Senior Team took time out from their training on their the journey to the All Ireland to be photographed with Buddy Bear, our mascot and with Daniel Murphy a former student who is lobbying the Assembly and helping us to raise funds to keep the school open as it urgently needs donations.

Daniel who is a Down supporter worked hard every day for 14 years at the only Buddy Bear Conductive Education School in Ireland to overcome the crippling effects of cerebral palsy is proud that an Ulster Team is in the All Ireland Final.

Daniel like the Tyrone Team understands the effort of daily training and the determination that is needed to be successful as there are no miracles at the Buddy  Bear School but hard work under expert advice from the Principal Conductor, Miss Ildiko Veres." said Chairman Brendan McConville

All the Ulster Teams agreed to be photographed with Buddy Bear and Daniel and to encourage their local clubs to raise funds for the Buddy Bear School as they recognised that cerebral palsy can impact on any family.  We certainly need funds now.

It took Daniel 14 years to learn to walk alone onto a park to stand with the Champions of each of the Ulster counties for a photograph with Buddy Bear. Daniel is now independent but we need your funds to give the other children the chance of their freedom from cerebral palsy.

We hope that clubs, firms and individuals will help us with sponsorship until we can convince the First and Deputy First Minister to provide the financial support and assistance recommended by the Assembly at its meeting on 19 Feb 2008.
