John Lynch was a GAA All Star in 1986. The same year he was part of the first Tyrone senior side to play in an All Ireland Final. They would lose this final to the great Kerry side featuring the likes of Jack Ó Sé, Pat Spillane, Bomber Liston, Páidí Ó Sé and many more. John did win 3 senior Ulster medals with Tyrone. I had a chat with the Castlederg man a few days after the All Ireland football final where the red hand county got their hands on their fourth Sam Maguire, by defeating Mayo by 5 points in the decider. Myself and John review the final itself in detail and John talks about his own playing days. He talks glowingly about the great Art McRory, who as manger enjoyed numerous successes with Tyrone provincially. John outlines the great relationships Art had with players from school level to senior level at various sports. I hope you enjoy the interview!
