CONALL McCann had particular reason to celebrate Tyrone’s Ulster Championship final win over Down.

Tyrone may have won 15 Ulster titles in their history, but they celebrated yesterday’s like it was the first.
DOWN will no longer have the surprise factor to carry into Sunday’s Ulster final but remain a dangerous threat to Tyrone according to Mickey Harte.
