Harte insists gaelic football is in rude health

Tyrone football manager Mickey Harte says gaelic football remains a great spectacle despite the claims by many pundits that the game has become over-defensive.

"Last year's Ulster Final between ourselves and Donegal was as good a game as I have ever been involved in," said Harte.

"Would you like the alternative where you go to a game and a team like Dublin have somebody plastered by 15 points by half-time? What value is there sitting through the second half of that."
