Has Mickey announced that he's retiring from the county scene?

I think there's still enough life left in the old dog. In a heartbeat I'd say bye bye Banty hello Mickey

Should be bye bye Banty regardless, any decent upcoming club manager in Monaghan would be a better choice for 2021.

End of era for Tyrone, a few of the Tyrone posters on here wanted him gone years ago without realising he was getting the very best out of the current group of players, good luck to whoever follows him he'll need it.

Do you think he was getting the best out of them?

Yes. Led Tyrone to the business end of the championship (Semi final or final) in 5 of the last 7 years and in those years 6 of the 7 championship exits was against teams they expected to lose against. In the same timeframe Donegal with arguably a better panel of players only progressed past the last 8 stage once.

And on RTÉ also. Big boots to fill.

Mickey Harte stands down as Tyrone manager after 18 years


Mickey Harte's 18-year spell as manager of the Tyrone senior football team is over, with the three-time All-Ireland winner confirming he has stood down.

Uncertainty surrounded the future of the longest-serving manager in Gaelic football this week after the county's Ulster SFC exit at hands of great rivals Donegal.


Having come to the end of a three-year term following his reappointment in 2017, Harte had little to say about his future following their early championship exit to Donegal recently. "I haven't considered anything about that just right now," he said.

Harte transformed Tyrone into one of the powerhouses of Gaelic football, leading them to their first All-Ireland title in 2003, followed by two more in 2005 and 2008

Great manager, good luck to him in retirement
retirement??

I just assumed that it's retirement for him, I can't see him managing anyone else. You could be right though, maybe he'll go again elsewhere

If that was Paddy Tally’s interview for the Tyrone job it didn’t go particularly well!!

Two year term for Anthony Cunningham was up with Roscommon and they gave him another two years tonight.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Tony McEntee and Eamonn O’Hara are the leading candidates for the Sligo senior football managerial position. Crossmolina native Joe Keane part of McEntee management while Mike Solan guided Mayo to the 2016 All-Ireland U21 title is believed to be on board with O’Hara.

Both are good prospects. My only concern is and I rate Keane highly is that we regressed under his coaching. It makes no sense but we did. Taylor had a strong back room team with Dineen in there too.

I believe a fresh approach is required. I find the O Hara/Solan team very exciting. What can Mayo posters say about Solan? McEntee would want to have some plan in place and have performed unreal in the interviews to out do O Hara.

It will be interesting as our current chairman is Tourlestrane man and obviously so is O Hara so it would be strange if it wasn't given to him.

I hope my (third?) cousin does a cracking job and Sligo surpasses Louth.
