After last weekend's minor championship game against Tyrone, Donegal's Micheal Carroll told his manager Declan Bonner that he was taunted by two members of the opposition over the recent death of his father.
Tyrone GAA have released a statement tonight. They say they have conducted an investigation involving both players and management and have found that none of their players made any such comment.
They refute the allegation in 'the strongest possible terms'.
Due to persistent allegations circulating in the media, some of which have been attributed to the Donegal Minor football manager, regarding verbal abuse during the Tyrone v Donegal Ulster Minor Football Championship match, Coiste Contae Thir Eoghain has conducted an investigation, involving its management and players.
As a result of the investigation undertaken it would refute in the strongest possible terms that a comment was made by any of its players to a Donegal player regarding the death of his father in 2014. Tyrone GAA in no way condone 'sledging' and the managers and coaches of all our county teams, from Acadamh Thir Eoghain to Senior, actively discourage this practice.
Tyrone GAA congratulates both Donegal teams on their victories on Sunday in Ballybofey, wishing them well in the remainder of their 2015 campaigns and would express our deepest sympathies to the player on his loss.
