Under the guidance of current senior boss Mickey Harte, a talented Tyrone group were defeated by Laois in the ’97 All-Ireland MFC final before they beat the same opposition in the following year’s decider.

That group went on to win two All-Ireland U21 medals under Harte before 11 players graduated to senior level and helped the county deliver the Sam Maguire for the first time in 2003.
