Hanley still in Mayo’s plans


Mike Finnerty

FORMER Mayo minor captain Cian Hanley is unlikely to feature in the upcoming National League games against Tyrone or Donegal, but he remains in Stephen Rochford’s plans for the upcoming championship campaign.
The Ballaghaderreen native, who returned home from Australia last month, has been attending Mayo training sessions recently but is still working his way back towards match fitness.
The Mayo News understands that Hanley (22) is likely to make his return to competitive action with his club in the coming weeks.
A return to fitness and form for the talented forward, who spent four years in Australia with the Brisbane Lions, would be a big boost to the Mayo management team as they step up their preparations for their Connacht championship clash with Galway on May 13 in Castlebar.
Meanwhile, Stephen Rochford confirmed last Sunday that Brendan Harrison will definitely miss the rest of the National League while Donie Vaughan, Chris Barrett and Evan Regan are also almost certainly out of action until next month.
Elsewhere, the earliest possible return date for Keith Higgins to the county football squad will be Sunday week next, March 25 against Donegal.
The Ballyhaunis dual star will be lining out with the Mayo hurlers next Sunday in their National League Division 2B Final against Down at Kingspan Breffni in Cavan.
However, Paddy Durcan from Castlebar Mitchels may be in line to feature against Tyrone next Sunday as he recovers from a quad injury sustained against Galway last month.

Tyrone clash
MAYO take on Tyrone in the penultimate round of the National Football League at MacHale Park, Castlebar next Sunday at 2pm.
A win for the homeside would see them retain their Division 1 status for 2019, while a defeat would leave them needing to beat Donegal in their final group game on Sunday week in Ballybofey.
Mayo have been installed as the 8/11 favourites to beat the Ulster champions next weekend.
