The Western is reporting that Conor Mortimor is now doubtful for the Sligo game. Apparently, he’s got a thigh strain which Johnno describes as “soft muscle damage”. One of the lads on gaaboard.com (a Sligoman too) thinks he might be okay to play with an injection. I hope he’s right, though this could be more Yeats County pot-stirring. That Western report also says that Trevor Howley could miss the entire summer’s campaign with his injury. It never rains but it pours.
Conor would obviously be an enormous loss, given his proven importance to us as a scoretaker. Even if he does play the next day with the aid of an injection, this sounds like the kind of injury that could continue to dog him over the coming few months. That would be seriously bad news.
Right, gotta go – plane home to catch and all that. More tomorrow.
