TG4 WILL AIR a documentary on Sunday evening at 8.30pm called ‘Tír Eoghain: The Unbreakable Bond’ which looks back at the “untold narrative behind the most successful minor team in the history of the GAA – the Tyrone Class of 1997/1998.”

Under the guidance of current senior boss Mickey Harte, a talented Tyrone group were defeated by Laois in the ’97 All-Ireland MFC final before they beat the same opposition in the following year’s decider.

That group went on to win two All-Ireland U21 medals under Harte before 11 players graduated to senior level and helped the county deliver the Sam Maguire for the first time in 2003.
