Tyrone manager Mickey Harte believes that Dublin are a better side than twelve months ago but he is relishing locking horns with a side which brings a special atmosphere to Croke Park on big championship occasions.
“The last eight is where you always want to be and meeting Dublin is always a good game because they bring an atmosphere like none other to those stages of the championship.
You really get an All Ireland atmosphere with the Dubs every time that you come here. They are the team who have done a lot more than us in the last twelve or fifteen months and they will go in as favourites but we will have to try and avenge last year’s result.
They have matured because they were new to the system that they played last year and now they have another year to sort of work at that system and maybe built a bit of belief in themselves. They are a more formidable side that they were this time last year and that will ask a lot of questions of us.”
