Figures from across Tyrone yesterday paid tribute to the remarkable achievements of three-time All-Ireland winning manager Mickey Harte, after he called time on his trophy-laden 18-year reign as the counties' GAA manager at the weekend.

While he was known as the most successful manager in Tyrone GAA history - winning the Sam Maguire trophy in 2003, 2005 and 2008 - many have spoken of his qualities off the field as much as on it.

Television presenter and Dungannon-man Adrian Logan described Harte as "one of the all time greats" and reminisced about his warm character off the field.
