Charity Jersey - Team Cian Jersey On Sale!
Cian Corrigan from Dungannon passed away on 8th May 2009, just six weeks short of his 12th birthday from a very rare malignant spinal cord tumour and just six months after being diagnosed.
Cian was born in Dublin and became an avid fan of the Dublin team. When he was eight, the family moved from Dublin to Dungannon, County Tyrone, where he became immersed in the Tyrone GAA scene. He played for Dungannon Thomas Clarkes Under 10 team and he loved nothing more than being on the pitch, playing for his beloved club. The GAA was an integral part of his life.
His love of the Dublin, Tyrone and Dungannon Thomas Clarke GFC teams inspired his family to design a jersey in his memory. The Team Cian jersey is a combination of his three beloved teams and his favorite no 7 wore by Henrik Larsson of Celtic . The dragonfly emblem was taken from the children's dragonfly story . The family worked with O'Neill's on designing the jersey and secured approval from the Tyrone and Dublin County boards to use their respective crests creating this unique one off jersey in his memory. The family take great comfort and immense pride to see the jersey on so many people in the Dungannon area and beyond.
All proceeds from the sale of the jerseys go to the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice which helped Cian and the family so much both during his illness and after his passing.
