Mourners turn out in the Co Tyrone village of Augher for the funeral of former Tyrone GAA coach Fergal McCann. Fergal McCann, who hailed from Augher, was part of Mickey Harte's management team when the Red Hand County clinched the All-Ireland Football title in 2005 and 2008. Mr McCann also worked as a schools coach for Tyrone GAA but was best known for his key role with Harte's squad. Photograph: Pacemaker
