Tyrone boss Mickey Harte has written to RTE on behalf of a number of GAA managers concerned about how it has treated one of its commentators.

Some had expected Brian Carthy to fill the gap left on radio by Micheal O Muircheataigh, who retired last year.

RTE said it is using a pool of commentators and Mr Carthy is one of those on the roster.

Mr Harte, who is a friend of Mr Carthy, declined to do a traditional post-match interview with RTE last weekend.

RTE said it had responded to the letter sent by Mr Harte.
