Mickey Harte makes two changes for Mayo showdown Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has made two changes to his starting XV for this Sunday's All-Ireland semi-final against Mayo.

Connor McAliskey replaces Martin Penrose, who is suspended after his sending off in the quarter-final victory over Monaghan.

The only other change comes in defence with Ryan McKenna preferred to 2003 All-Ireland winner Dermot Carlin.

The Cavanagh brothers continue at midfield and are on a collision course with the Mayo's OShea brothers in what should provide an intriguing subplot to this weekend's clash.
