Big Joe Mc Mahon returns to the Tyrone side for their league fixture with Kildare on Sunday at Healy Park. He will line out at number three and will have Killyclogher’s Martin Swift beside him in the corner. Swift gets a chance to fill in for his club colleague Dermot Carlin who gets married on Friday. The big news for Tyrone supporters is on the bench of course as team captain Brian Dooher and four times All Star Philip Jordan are named for the first time this year. Joining them among the subs is Enda Mc Ginley who returns to the panel having been out injured since Tyrone’s defeat of Sligo. None of the under-21 players are named on the panel as they prepare for an Ulster under-21 championship semi-final meeting with Monaghan.
