Cavanagh weighing up his options


Sean Cavanagh has not ruled out the possibility of extending his inter-county career by another year.

Cavanagh had hoped to end his inter-county career with another All-Ireland title but his dream was ended last weekend when Tyrone were beaten by Mayo in the quarter-final.

His controversial dismissal in the latter stages of the game could have a bearing on his decision and the five-time All-Star admits he will not be rushed into making a decision on his future.

"At this stage, there’s that many different factors that come into it, that I’m definitely not in the mind-frame to make any rash decisions at this stage. I don’t think it needs to be made right now,” he said.

"I’m long enough about to know that you shouldn’t do that, so look, it will be a case of playing a bit of club football for the next few weeks and seeing how the body holds up, and seeing how the winter goes, to a certain extent.

"My wife has been convinced that this was definitely my last year playing football.

"I had promised myself and I had promised everyone that 2016 would be my last year, but by the same token, I was fully expecting to be in an All-Ireland semi-final and possibly an All-Ireland final.

"So whenever these things don’t work out as you’ve planned, you do have to re-think these things, so that’s exactly what I’ll be doing."
