McKenna recalled to starting line-up for Donegal clash

TYRONE have named their team to face Donegal in tomorrow’s eagerly awaited Ulster Championship semi-final showdown at Brewster Park.

Conor McKenna, who missed their quarter-final victory against Cavan a week ago due to an injury concern, returns to the starting line-up.

Derrylaughan’s Brian Kennedy, who excelled against Cavan when introduced from the bench, has been rewarded with a place on the first 15. He will be partnered by Conn Kilpatrick in midfield, who also impressed greatly against the Breffni County.


Cathal McShane, who scored three points when he came on as a sub against Cavan after a 17-month absence, has been named on the bench.

There’s no place for Ronan McNamee in the official match-day panel after he was sent off against Cavan, but he is available to play after his red card was downgraded to a yellow earlier in the week, so it’d be no surprise if he still features.

Donegal have also released their team, which can be seen at the bottom of this article, with Michael Murphy named to start.
