TYRONE HAVE SELECTED their side for Saturday’s All-Ireland senior football quarter-final against Mayo in Croke Park.

And manager Mickey Harte has kept faith with the team that saw off Donegal in last month’s Ulster final.

Rory Brennan, Mark Bradley, Jonathan Monroe, Darren McCurry and Kieran McGeary are all named on the bench again after coming on as substitutes in that Ulster decider.

From the counties last championship meeting in 2013 – when Mayo triumphed 1-16 to 0-13 – there are six survivors from the starting side three years ago in Cathal McCarron, Peter Harte, Colm and Sean Cavanagh, Mattie Donnelly and Conor McAliskey.

There are only two survivors from the Tyrone side that saw off Mayo in the championship meeting between the counties back in 2008 with centre-back Justin McMahon and full-forward Sean Cavanagh.

Throw-in on Saturday in Croke Park is 4pm.
