Stevie McDonnell, Barry Taggart and Mattie Daly.
Tyrone SFC first round
Clonoe v Coalisland
You can infer from Clonoe’s high-profile appointment of Stevie McDonnell that they mean business this year. The Armagh legend has been tasked with bringing the good times back to the O’Rahilly’s, but they’ll have to do it the hard way as they take on their old pals Coalisland in the first round. Team captain Connor McAliskey’s decision to take time out from the inter-county scene seems to have given him a fresh lease of life as he’s scored heavily in the league, but worryingly Dan McNulty – who can ping the ball over from all angles when he’s in the mood – and PJ Lavery are injury doubts at the moment. They’ve still been going well, and are racking up big scores, so they’ll be hopeful of having their first decent championship run in a few years.
