New Tyrone documentary set to air on TG4

A new documentary covering the 1997/1998 Tyrone minor winning team will air on TG4 at 8:30pm on Sunday.

The program will talk to Peter Canavan, Eoin Mulligan and other members of a Tyrone team that went to back-to-back All-Ireland finals against Laois.

Tyrone lost the first game but avenged their defeat the following year with the nucleus of that team then kicking on and winning three All-Ireland titles over the course of the next decade.

Tyrone will play three-time defending All-Ireland champions Dublin in the All-Ireland final next weekend and Canavan believes that in order to beat Dublin, you have to start by disrupting their kick-outs.

The former All-Ireland winning captain highlighted in his weekly Sky Sports column Tyrone's inability to do this against a Monaghan side they only overcame by one point in last week's semi-final.

"If we are going to trouble Dublin or even try to rattle them we have to start with their kick-outs and that was an area the team was poor in against Monaghan.

"In fact we only won two out of Monaghan's 24 kick-outs and one of those resulted in a point for Petey Harte.

"Tyrone only ended up winning that game by a point so that kick-out won was crucial.

"And if we do not challenge Dublin in that regard and try to put Cluxton under pressure from the start it will be hard to see Tyrone getting the result they need."
