Tyrone boss Mickey Harte has turned up the heat on rivals Dublin ahead of the 2019 All-Ireland football championship.

The Red Hands lost out in last year’s final to the Dubs and Harte feels the pressure is on Jim Gavin’s men to achieve an unprecedented feat this summer in capturing a fifth Sam Maguire Cup in-a-row.

"What they have done is amazing. It is not easy to win two in-a-row, never mind, three and four in-a-row. They have that done and banked,” Harte is quoted saying by the Irish Independent.  

"There will be pressure on them because there will be a lot of talk about the five-in-row and there will be a lot of anticipation as to whether they can make another bit of history.

"So let's hope history weighs heavily on their shoulders.”
