Brian Dooher is the first man down the tunnel. Probably a landmark day for some of our lads. They don’t owe any of us another ounce of sweat. Dublin were simply the better team on the day. Back to the club championship!

6.30pm – Very small number of people in place at this stage. It looks like the crowd are taking shelter in their cars and the local hostelries. Floodlights just coming on.
The word in the press box is that Tyrone will tog out as selected. It remains to be seen.
We’re in place in a very, very wet Croke Park. Very similar to the evening we played the Dubs in 2008. We only need the thunder and lightening and we’re ready to go.
Undoubtedly Tyrone’s biggest challenge of the year so far. The Dubs in a huge atmosphere in Croke Park. We’ll be in place shortly before 7pm to bring you all the latest news from this years All Ireland Quarter Final.
