Donnelly boost for Tyrone


Tyrone manager Mickey Harte says Mattie Donnelly will be fit for Saturday's All-Ireland SFC quarter-final against Mayo in Croke Park.

The Trillick clubman sustained a head injury during a league game against Errigal Ciaran on Sunday, but Donnelly says the 2015 All Star will be available after coming through 'return to play' concussion protocols.

"He has got clearance now, it will be nine days since his hit before he goes into any contact again," Harte said.

Harte also expressed disappointment that Tyrone are not allowed to appeal the black cards Donnelly and Cathal McShane received in the Ulster final win over Donegal.

Donnelly received the black card for a body check on Eoin McHugh, while McShane was sent off for tripping Neil McGee.

Under new GAA rules, the player can only appeal after his third black card and the subsequent one-game suspension.

"I don't have to tell you that I was never an advocate of the black card anyway," he said.

"I really did not see the value in it and it adds another degree of difficulty to the job of referees."
