Red alert: Cathal McShane will hope to make an impact in 2021

The new Tyrone management duo of Feargal Logan and Brian Dooher are suddenly discovering that there is a mounting swell of goodwill being shown towards their county - and it's all because of Cavan's below-par performance in the recent All-Ireland semi-final against Dublin.

Having stormed to their first Ulster title in 23 years, Mickey Graham's side had entered their showdown with the Dubs against a backdrop of optimism.

But the reigning champions took a decisive step towards their sixth successive All-Ireland title by coming out on top by 1-24 to 0-12, having moved into overdrive in the second half after leading by 0-12 to 0-7 at half-time.
