Tributes to a ‘little jewel’

"We got to know Michaela over the last seven or eight years.

"She was part of Tyrone's history because she was so close to her dad and it is just devastating."

-- RTE GAA sports commentator Marty Morrissey

"It is really so sad. I was on the Up For The Match programme with her a few years back. She was such a lovely person."

-- Daithi O'Se

"I have seen her grow into a very beautiful young woman, intensely interested in the GAA, intensely proud of her family, very well adjusted, just somebody you could be very, very proud of.

"I never saw her happier than she was on her wedding day. She was radiant... She couldn't have been happier."

-- Family friend Fr Gerard McAleer

"Michaela was such a recognisable figure with her dad Mickey when Tyrone made the breakthrough to All-Ireland senior success in 2003 and many years in advance she had forecasted the victory of the team under her dad's guidance.

"I have known the Harte family for years and my thoughts are with them on this unspeakably sad day."

-- Fine Gael sports spokesman John O'Mahony TD
