McKenna has high hopes for Tyrone

Tyrone minor Peter McKenna

Donaghmore player, Peter McKenna, has produced several impressive performances for the Tyrone minors this year from the half-back line.

His probing runs forward and a well-taken point in the Ulster Final against Monaghan have left him and the rest of the team in confident mood ahead of Sunday’s All-Ireland Minor football Championship quarter-final.

“It means a lot for all the players to have won the Ulster title. People think Ulster is just a stepping stone, but winning against Monaghan was a big thing for the players,” he said.


“Our hope would be that the win will bode well for the future. Tyrone have won a lot of Ulster titles in the past and it’s important to remember that for all of us this is new. Everything is a first for us now.

“The aim now is for the quarter final, and we haven’t seen Meath at all this year. We didn’t know anything about them, but that has all changed in the past few weeks.”
