Mickey Harte has no doubt he will be managing Tyrone beyond this summer.

Harte is in the last year of his current agreement with the county board, the first time that has happened in his 15-year reign, which prompted speculation this year would be his last.

However Harte, attempting to win a sixth Ulster SFC title on Sunday week, insists: "I've never believed that it should be and I don't believe that it will be.

"It doesn't feel like that to me, I don't even think that way," said the three-time All-Ireland winning manager.

"Lots of other people might feel or think that it should be my last year but with the help of God it won't be and I'll still be around here to proceed with what I'm doing at the minute."
