The country's top inter-county footballers are in Abu Dhabi this weekend for the GAA/GPA All Stars Tour
and one of the managers on the tour is Mickey Harte
The Tyrone manager has been speaking to the Irish media on the tour and was reflecting back on what was a decent year for a Tyrone side who remember, beat Donegal in this year's Ulster Final.
He makes some interesting observations as he prepares for another year in the hot-seat with Tyrone - and after all these years in charge, he insists the inter-county game has not become a chore for him or his players
He also welcomed Sean Cavanagh's decision to extend his inter-county careers - saying it's superb to see the player with the enthusiasm of a youngster
