Social Media Reaction – Plenty of praise for Tyrone

Tyrone’s Tiernan McCann (left) scored the goal that killed the game off yesterday

Those who expected a Donegal victory on Sunday suffered a shock when the Tyrone won comfortable.

This Ulster semi-final was expected to be one of the closest games of the competition, but it turned into just another one sided affair just before half time as the Red Hands went on a run and amassed a 0-12 to 0-5 at the interval.

Tiernan McCann’s goal killed the game off early in the second half and from there on Donegal were just playing for pride.

It was not the game anyone had been expecting.

Tyrone players past and present felt the need to celebrate their team’s victory, while pundits took to social media to empahsise how great this result was.

Joe McMahon, who retired earlier this year, applauded his team mates, while Sean Cavanagh commeneded his brother Colm’s man-of-the-match performance. And former Tyrone forward Kyle Coney was impressed by Mattie Donnelly.

The only question now is will Tyrone win their first back-to-back Ulster title since 2010?
