OWEN MULLIGAN HAS left the building.

The Tyrone star is reported – in several sources this morning – to have quit the county’s senior panel.

The All-Ireland winner missed training on Tuesday as well as last night. Tyrone are currently preparing for a third-round qualifier against either Wicklow or Armagh.Mulligan has not been able to box off a position this year, with Harte utilising him as an impact sub. He came on as a second-half sub in both wins over Monaghan and Longford though he started in the defeat to Donegal.
