MAYO manager James Horan received a big boost ahead of the Connacht SFC Final when both Seamus and Aidan O’Shea played a full sixty minutes for Breaffy in their Mayo SFC clash with Claremorris.
Aidan had been sidelined with a stomach muscle injury since April 8 and, while the injury may require surgery later this year, he is expected to be in contention for a place in Horan’s squad for the July 15 showdown with Sligo on Sunday week next.
The 22 years-old lined out at centre-half forward before moving to full-forward during his side’s eight-points defeat to Claremorris.
Seamus O’Shea has been sidelined since the middle of May with a groin injury but played the full game last Sunday at midfield with James Horan, and selector Tom Prendergast, among the attendance in Breaffy.
Kirby takes break
MEANWHILE, Castlebar’s Danny Kirby, who was dropped from the Mayo senior squad just before their championship opener against Leitrim, flew to Chicago yesterday (Monday) for a month-long break.
Kirby lined out for the Mitchels against Ballinrobe on Sunday afternoon and he will miss their final group game against Crossmolina if it goes ahead, as planned, on the weekend of July 21/22.
