GAA PRESIDENT Liam O’Neill has criticised the ‘consistent negativity’ of Mickey Harte.

The Tyrone manager complained of what he perceived as inconsistent refereeing of the drawn Ulster championship opener with Down on Sunday.

“In fairness to Mickey Harte, he doesn’t leave much negativity out,” the Association chief said on Ocean FM today.

“If there’s something negative to be said, Mickey will say it and he’s consistent on that.”

The All-Ireland winning coach was unhappy with Down’s Conor Maginn avoiding a black card for pulling back on of Tyrone’s players.
