They won their fourth Ulster SFC in 1984, and they followed their fifth title in 1986 with an appearance in their first All-Ireland final, where they were beaten by Kerry, 2-15 to 1-10. They added another Ulster SFC in 1989.
In 1994, Tyrone were defeated in the Ulster SFC final by Down, but their forward Peter Canavan was Ulster's top scorer, winning his first All Star Award. The following year they reached their second All-Ireland final. Dublin won the 1995 final 1-10 to 0-12, in a match that was notable both for Canavan scoring 11 of Tyrone's 12 points, and for Dublin's Charlie Redmond failing to leave the pitch for a full minute after being sent off for a foul. Tyrone won another Ulster SFC in 1996.
2003 saw the introduction of the new Tyrone manager, Mickey Harte. Harte took Tyrone to another Ulster SFC title and victory in the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship (SFC) in his first year. The 2003 final pitted Tyrone against neighbours and rivals Armagh, the reigning champions. It was the first All-Ireland SFC final between teams from the same province.
Tragedy struck the following year with the sudden death of Cormac McAnallen, at the age of 24. Tyrone, however, came back the following year to win the All-Ireland SFC for the second time. They played five matches in the Ulster SFC, including replays in the second round against Cavan and the final against Armagh, which they lost. Having beaten Monaghan in the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers, Tyrone had yet another drawn game in the All-Ireland SFC quarter-final, against Dublin - a match notable for Owen Mulligan's stunning solo goal. In the semi-final, they met Armagh for the third time, winning 1-13 to 1-12 with an injury-time free kick by Peter Canavan. In the 2005 final, they defeated Kerry for the second time in three years to win a third All-Ireland SFC, sparking emotional scenes among the Tyrone team and fans, in remembrance of Cormac McAnallen.
Tyrone won their eleventh Ulster SFC in 2007. They lost their Ulster SFC quarter-final to Down in 2008, but came back via the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers to win their third All-Ireland SFC, beating Kerry 1-15 to 0-14 in the 2008 final.
They won their fifteenth Ulster SFC in 2017.

The high point of the Tyrone camogie story was the run of Eglish to the 1991 All-Ireland Senior Club Camogie Championship final. Led by the Jordan sisters they pulled off two of the shocks of the century in defeating Loughgiel in the Ulster final by 3-7 to 2-4 and then defeating Celtic of Dublin in the All Ireland semi-final, but lost the final heavily against Mullagh from Galway
Tyrone qualified for the All Ireland junior final of 1980 against Cork, defeating Armagh, Antrim and Louth in their path to the final. Ursula Jordan was the outstanding player of the era and in the history of camogie in the county, and was selected for Ulster's Gael Linn Cup inter-provincial team. Ann Jordan, Sheila Burke and Paula Vallely were other notable players from the 1980s. Vera Campbell refereed the All Ireland senior finals of 1939, 1940 and 1943.
