Triumphant Tyrone boss Mickey Harte paid an emotional tribute to the late Cormac McAnallen seconds after the All-Ireland final win over Kerry.
"When Cormac was made Tyrone captain he said he did not want to leave it with just one All-Ireland - and he hasn't," said Harte, breaking into tears.
"It has been a long hard road, we played 10 games and this is just a wonderful day for the county."
McAnallen died in March 2004 because of a viral infection in his heart.
Harte was full of priase for Kerry who relinquished the title they won for the 33rd time 12 months earlier.
"Who better to put it up to you than Kerry? It could have gone either way but we got the rub of the green."
The Tyrone boss also had a special word for goalscorer Peter Canavan who was replaced at half-time only to come on again for the last 15 minutes.
"Peter is a special player. He is 34 years of age now and cannot manage 70 minutes at that pace.
"But he can manage 50, and he did so today."
