Mickey Harte's future as Tyrone manager remains unclear after a County Board meeting didn't ratify him as expected last night.

Instead delegates were informed that there would be briefing with all inter-county managers ahead of the next Board meeting, including Fergal Logan's successful U-21 management who look set to continue on in that role.

Harte said last week that it would be "nice" to hear from the Board about the future after he made it clear he wanted to continue.

But despite submissions from some clubs to press ahead with extending the three-time All-Ireland-winning manager's time in charge, that will not now take place for another month.

Meanwhile, Diarmuid Connolly's challenge to his one-match suspension is likely to take place tomorrow night after a request for a hearing was formally lodged by Dublin.
