Tiernan McCann is an Irish Gaelic football player who plays at inter-county level for Tyrone, and plays his club football for Killyclogher St. Mary's.
In the 2015 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship victory over Monaghan on 8 August at Croke Park, McCann was heavily criticized after he threw himself to the ground when Monaghan's Darren Hughes stroked the top of his head, with Hughes then sent off for the action. McCann was handed an eight-week ban for his behavior which was then lifted at a meeting of the Central Hearings Committee on 19 August.
