Tribute Tuesday – Peter Canavan

Tyrone were victorious in last weekend’s Ulster final. Sean Cavanagh was captain, leader and Man of the Match. We gave the Ulster final negative press, but let’s put some positivity back in Ulster by remembering Tyrone’s greatest ever captain and leader, Peter Canavan. It might be the second week in a row that we are paying tribute to a Tyrone footballer. …

A sweeper covering touchline to touchline in front of a disciplined, dogged and durable back row. A high-energy, swarming defence, featuring a half-back line that break with pace, incision and ruthless precision. An inside forward line that blends power, pace and deft skill seamlessly. That was Donegal in 2012. This is Tyrone in 2016. It’s taken him five years, but …

Harte’s Resurgent Tyrone Can Break Dublin’s Grip On The Sam Maguire

Having coming within touching distance of an All-Ireland Final in 2015 and after such a clinical and merciless victory over Derry last week, it baffles me how Tyrone aren’t being considered huge contenders for Sam Maguire this year. Derry put up a spirited fight in Celtic Park but their obvious lack of organisation, technical ability and quite obvious fear of Tyrone …

Tyrone: Nobody Likes Them, & They Should Care

‘I have to say on behalf of Tiernan McCann… if he had the chance again he would have responded differently to what happened to him and we all accept that’.  At that point, Mickey Harte should have stopped talking. He didn’t. ‘I just want to say that he wasn’t entirely to blame for all of this. If the player who …

Mickey Harte Is Building Tyrone 2.0

It’s August in Croke Park, and once again Mickey Harte is back with a Tyrone team ready for a Quarter-Final tilt after a successful Qualifier run. The success of Tyrone though the back door (29 games played in the Qualifiers, 24 victories) is one of the true dependables of the last fifteen years. This team is different to its predecessors. …

Time for a change of Harte in Tyrone GAA?

Is Harte’s time up? 2015 has been a mixed year so far for Tyrone football. This Saturday, the under 21’s face Tipperary in Parnell Park in the final of the under-21 Championship as the Red Hands go in …
