Ahead of the All-Ireland final, former Tyrone player Colm McCullough explains how Mickey Harte created an attitude of invincibility.
TYRONE struggled to match Dublin in last year’s wretched All-Ireland semi-final loss to Dublin, but there were more encouraging signs in the recent ‘Super Eight’ clash at Healy Park that they have closed the gap. Speaking ahead of Sunday’s All-Ireland final against the Dubs, Peter Harte attributes much of the credit to the team’s strength […]
