Cathal McShane in contention for Ulster opener

THE Tyrone manager, Feargal Logan, has revealed that Darragh Canavan is in a battle to be fit for the Ulster Championship opener against Cavan at O’Neill’s Healy Park next month, but there’s better news for Cathal McShane.

He was injured in the early stages of the National League semi-final against Kerry nine days ago. But there are hopes that he will have recovered sufficiently from the angle injury to be in contention for a place against the reigning champions.

Feargal Logan also revealed that Cathal McShane, who missed the league campaign, is also currently taking a full part in training.


“Darragh had an ankle injury which just innocently against Kerry which is going to keep him out for a few weeks. But the early signs are good, even though it’s very painful,” the Stewartstown clubman said.

“It’s very unfortunate for him, but hopefully it’s a matter of weeks for him and not beyond that. It would be hopeful (that he’d be in the frame for the Cavan game) but we’ve just got to take it day by day and week by week in the meantime. He may be in difficulties for that match.

“Cathal (McShane) is coming on very well and has full participation essentially. But because it’s such a long time off with Cathal, we’r ejust re-integrating him gently. We are hopeful for him that it all comes together.”
