Tyrone will be without four-time All-Star Sean Cavanagh for this year’s Ulster and All-Ireland championship.
Manager Mickey Harte has stated that the Moy club man will play no further part in this year’s campaign after he picked-up a shoulder injury during a club match over the weekend. The 29 year-old was stretchered off during a game against Derrytresk.
The adaptable three-time All-Ireland winner had to undergo surgery on his other shoulder late last year after suffering a detached tendon. The Red Hand County have already lost the services of the likes of Kyle Coney, Ronan O’Neill and Tommy McGuigan this season, but Cavanagh’s injury is the biggest blow to their hopes of silverware this season. Harte has publicly revealed recently that he’s considering asking for some of his retired All-Ireland winners to return to the panel.
