Tyrone GAA must find a new jersey sponsor for 2015, as well as for their domestic club championships, after Hunky Dorys opted not to renew their agreement.

The Meath-based crisp firm, whose parent company Largo Foods also owns the Tayto brand in the South of Ireland, came on board as Tyrone sponsors in November 2012 on an initial two year deal with the option to extend for a third year, but have informed Tyrone GAA that they will not be taking up that option.

Club delegates at Tyrone county committee meeting were told that the sponsorship deal, worth six figures a year to Tyrone GAA, will expire at the end of the current Tyrone club championship series.

Tyrone still have a number of other partnership and sponsorship arrangements in place, including with water company Deep RiverRock and global chicken producer Moy Park.
