Mattie Donnelly says Tyrone's footballers have the capacity to be "the best in Ireland".

As they prepare to take their place in the inaugural Super 8s, Donnelly points out that his team-mates have all proven themselves at various levels down through the years.

"It's history in the making, the first year of this concept and we were so eager not to be watching on with other teams playing in it. There's a buzz about it built up at this stage as well, thank God we're there and in the mix," the Red Hands captain points out in The Irish Independent.

"Nearly every man on that panel has proved themselves to be the best in Ireland at some grade, be it Sigerson, minor or U21 football, we've done that before so we've a belief there definitely. It's just about who performs on the day now."
