Darragh Canavan, son of Tyrone legend Peter, has been drafted into the county’s senior panel ahead of their 2019 campaign.

According to the Ulster Herald, the Errigal Ciaran teenager was brought into Mickey Harte’s squad recently as they prepare to embark on their new season which gets underway in five days’ time against Derry.
