In advance of any team news for Sunday – with our starting fifteen expected to be announced at some point tomorrow night – today’s papers have some stuff emanating from the launch of the League campaign at Croke Park the other day. Seamus O’Shea took part in that event and there are pieces with him in today’s Irish Examiner and Irish Independent.
In them, Sheamie reflects back to last year’s loss to Kerry but also talks about the year ahead, with the new management in place and the clear aim that the group have of finally planting the flag on the summit. He makes no effort to hide his feelings that it would be doubly hard to walk away from the challenge, given how close the lads have come to sealing the deal in recent years.
That piece in the Examiner, by the way, says we’ll be without six regulars for the trip to Killarney, stating that Alan Dillon, Andy Moran, Tom Parsons, Tom Cunniffe, Ger Cafferkey and Aidan O’Shea will all miss the game. As I mentioned yesterday, the Mayo News is reporting this week that Aidan trained at the weekend and that Ger is on the mend so I’m not sure if both of these are deifnitely out but I guess all will be revealed on that score soon enough.
One thought on “Hard to walk away”
I think that the Examiner might be getting a bit mixed up between Aidan and Cillian. Cillian is suspended and therefore definitely out as well.
