Injury news is far from upbeat

Despite the ongoing radio silence from team management, in this week’s Mayo News Mike Finnerty provides a comprehensive update on injuries affecting the panel ahead of the Galway game on Sunday. It doesn’t make for an upbeat read and it’s online here.

Let’s start with the bad news.

According to Mike’s piece, Brendan Harrison, David McBrien, Jordan Flynn and Fionn McDonagh are all understood to be unavailable for the game due to their respective injuries. It gets worse because it’s also reported to be unlikely that Robbie Hennelly, Eoghan McLaughlin and Bryan Walsh will be involved on Sunday while Tommy Conroy is, of course, out for the whole campaign.

The bad news doesn’t end there because Paddy Durcan is said to be in a race against time to recover from the hamstring trouble that has kept him out of action since the Kerry game in Tralee six weeks ago.

In more positive news, both Oisín Mullin and Diarmuid O’Connor are understood to be fit and available for selection for Sunday’s crunch meeting with the neighbours.

  2. Maybe no news is good news. For those demanding updates on our injury situation that does not make very pleasant reading. No point rushing players back. If we lose Sunday which is highly possible we have a good break before we tackle the Back door. Hopefully that time will allow some injuries to clear up. If we beat Galway we should be ok v Leitrim As Connacht Final is at end of May it gives us a chance to have lads back. Maybe it will be someone else’s turn then to have an injury crisis. Is it not somewhat ironic that our fears about injuries used to crop up when our lads were playing club games but no club games for them now and we have the biggest injury crisis we ever had

  3. Diarmuid O’Connor was passed as been fit and having recovered from his hamstring problem for the Kildare game but it went again after 20minutes
