On a different note, I read Damian Casey, Tyrone's premier hurler giving the CB a trimming in Saturdays IN. The hurling county team haven't a manager in place yet, it is nothing short of a scandal for the CB, and to use Covid as an excuse is further example of the disrespect they pay Gaels. Do they think we are fools. Didn't take them long to sort the football management out, covid didn't feck that up. And to use it for the reason not to have a hurling manager, wtf. What is also alarming is that this is the first comment on this thread. These hurling clubs have been keeping the great small ball game alive  in Tyrone county, they could at least get some help from the officials who are charged with promoting the game. To say he has never used the main changing room in Garvaghey is unbelievable. Are Tyrone hurlers the Kilkenny version their football team. I never played the game but I just can't get over why they have to be so badly treated, why?

Mattie Lennon, according to Casey, has serious problems too with the county board.  He says that the previous administrstion was very good.

By the way, D. Casey is some hurler. Would walk on to any team in Ireland fantastic talent.]

No he would not. He is great at the frees and is decent but he wouldn't get near the Antrim team. He is telling one side of the story. There is a lot of politics going on here as the county chair is from Carrickmore, and they are Casey's club teams greatest rivals. What would be deemed a creditable hurling man in one players eyes, may be a bollix in another mans eyes. I have heard they are waiting on someone to come back to the mwho has a proven record at county level.

Yes, he'd make the Antrim team.  He's a standout and if he got to a higher level of competition, he'd thrive.

Not sure of the internal politics - you've obviously got a view - but a county board should, have a manager in place by now.

It's not as if they didn't have much time or it's a huge task.

Wee Roddy, this is the Casey who was selected on the Ulster side when the inter provincial series was on a few years ago and also selected on the Irish shinty team, and you think he wouldn't make a mid table Antrim team ffs. Your Carrickmore hatred of Dungannon hurling club is shining through lol

PAUL Devlin has been reinstalled as Tyrone manager on a new three-year term.

His three-year term came to an end following their All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Dublin prior to Christmas, but it was widely expected that he would be handed an extension after guiding the Tyrone U20s to back-to-back Ulster titles.

Commenting on his reappointment, he said: I am blessed to have the support from home and within the team, from players to the entire backroom group. I am very lucky to have a special group of individuals supporting me and helping out in a variety of ways.

My main goal is the honest development of players as individuals and as players for club and county. If silverware comes along the way that will be good and a bonus to us all.

I know we have won the last two Ulster titles but I think Devlin has underachieved with those sides in the last few seasons, we have had some outstanding forward talent there.

100% agree. There was atleast an All Ireland appearence in those teams.
Anyone else in for it I wonder? Next few teams coming through wouldn't have the same potential based on their U17 performances.

The U17s really should have beaten Kerry last year (2019 Championship) in the quarters, a host of goal chances missed in the first half and a red card ended up costing them.

Mark Devlin (any relation to Paul?) looked to be the star of that team, centre forward and looked a class act. Young McGleenan at midfield also looks like he has serious potential - was surprised neither were involved at u20 level this year. I think we should give Ulster a good rattle but probably don't have as good a team for competing outside as we had in the past two seasons.
