Oisin McConville: Tyrone will meet their match in Mayo… it will be an All-Ireland final full of earthy virtues

In overcoming Kerry in the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Semi-Final, Tyrone rapped out a sharp message to the effect that they are particularly keen to reclaim the Sam Maguire Cup after a 13-year famine.

hile they are entitled to their ambition, the Red Hands will surely know that on Saturday, Mayo will pose a rather different challenge.

For a start, Mayo will not be unduly discomfited by Tyrone’s smother tackling nor unhinged by the Ulster champions’ frantic work rate.
