Tyrone All-Ireland Minor Football Champions 1973
The fruits of renewal at the highest level were slow to emerge for Tyrone, and most of the success in the 1970s came at minor level. Ulster minor championship victories in 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, 1976 and 1978 – an impressive six titles in eight years – represented a record of provincial dominance unequalled by Tyrone teams at this or any other level. Sadly, it yielded only one All-Ireland crown, in 1973, when Tyrone beat Kildare by 2-11 to 1-6 at Croke Park – the county’s third All-Ireland minor triumph and its first since that of 1948.
