Mckenna may be in All-ire­land fi­nal frame

Irish Examiner - Sport - - GAA -

Spec­u­la­tion that Conor Mckenna may line out for Ty­rone in Sun­day’s All-ire­land fi­nal hasn’t gone away, as of­fi­cial team kit sport­ing the ini­tials “CMCK” has been spot­ted ahead of the game.

Mckenna, whose team Essendon com­pleted their AFL sea­son last Fri­day, hav­ing just missed out on the fi­nals, is un­der­stood to be back in the country, though Ty­rone have not con­firmed whether he is part of Mickey Harte’s plans for the clash with Dublin.

The ex­cit­ing 22-year-old was ex­pected to star in Ire­land’s In­ter­na­tional Rules se­ries against Aus­tralia last year, only to break down with an in­jury in train­ing. He has ex­pe­ri­enced a che­quered 2018, im­press­ing at times, but also pick­ing up a three-week ban for bit­ing an op­po­nent.
