The Ulster GAA Writers named their jubilee teams in football and hurling last night and not surprisingly Tyrone featured prominently in the football awards. The criteria for inclusion were that the players up for selection had to have been previous monthly winners of the Writers’ Merit Award or to have won Footballer or hurler of the year gongs.
Given Tyrone’s fine run over the past decade and a half it was no surprise that former and present Red Hand players were chosen in a third of the positions. Giant goalkeeper Finbarr Mc Connell was joined in the defence by Conor Gormley while two former All Ireland winning captains Brian Dooher and Peter Canavan were selected in the forward line along with present county star Sean Cavanagh. All in all it was a pretty impressive team that also included former greats Kieran Mc Keever, Henry Downey, Anthony Tohill, Paul Mc Grane, Greg Blaney and Mickey Linden.
