Harte Ready For Another Year Despite Cavanagh’s Call For Change

Tyrone performed well on Sunday and looked superior to Kerry for large spells throughout their All-Ireland semi-final but ultimately faltered down the home stretch as Stephen O’Brien’s goal ignited the Kingdom to push on and claim a three-point win in Croke Park.  For Mickey Harte and Tyrone, it’s back to the drawing board following a topsy turvy season that saw …

James Horan: “They Pinned Their Ears Back And Ran At Us”

James Horan cut a dejected figure following his side’s ten-point defeat to Dublin in the All-Ireland SFC semi-final. To many of the near 80,000 strong crowd in the stadium, it looked as though Mayo had Jim Gavin’s side on the ropes come half-time when they deservedly led by two points following a pulsating half of football, particularly defensively. However, Dublin …
