21 – Conall McCann – Coill an Chlochair
22 – Darren McCurry – Éadan na dTorc

24 – Padraig McNulty – Pádraig Mac an Ultaigh
25 – Jonathan Monroe – An Charraig Mhór
26 – Barry Tierney – An Omaigh

Same starting XV for Tyrone, only change in the 26 sees Conor Clarke come in for Conor Meyler.

Meyler and Richie Donnelly would seem to be the main absentees, Lee Brennan fails to make the 26 again.

Niall Morgan will be key to this, Tyrone have massive problems from distance free kicks 35 yards + out. Morgan is the best man for him and if he misses the first few Donegal will happy out making cynical fouls round the 45 yard line when they need to.

Should be a cracking game.


Making my way to Clones now with The Border Bull.

Come on Tyrone,
Come on Tyrone,
Come on Tyrone,
Come on

Cant wait for this. Will watch on bbc.they give a more balanced coverage than RTE

Paddy power were offering 5/2 Tyrone and Galway, I couldn’t resist that.

I’d be a bit out of touch with current events but I’m some man for getting a read on teams. Tyrone will win this by 3 points.

Scorcher of a day in the beautiful surroundings of Clones.

I’ll be topping up on my Tiernan McTann today by the looks of things.

Morgan off to a good start on the placed balls

Terrible wide.

A few bad wides, both teams snatching at shots so far

A load of day trippers eagerly cheering wides for their respective teams.

Great point.

Keepers under pressure to keep the short kickouts between the lines

This is utterly shit so far.

Which is exactly what we wanted. :clap:
