Hennelly heartbroken by replay defeat

Mayo goalkeeper Rob Hennelly has vowed not to give up following his disappointing performance in the All-Ireland SFC final replay defeat to Dublin.

Hennelly was recalled to the starting line-up ahead of David Clarke for Saturday's replay at Croke Park but the decision backfired on manager Stephen Rochford as he made a number of errors before conceding a penalty.

He was black carded for his tackle on Diarmuid Connolly and watched on from the bench as Dublin ran out 1-15 to 1-14 winners.

In an emotional message on Instagram, alongside an image of the moment he was shown the black card, Hennelly wrote: "I'll never be able to fully describe what was going through my head at this moment. What I was expecting to be one of my best days turned out to be the opposite, and it breaks my heart that I didn't come through for my team and county.

"I told a brilliant young man Anthony Casey that that one game wouldn't define him, and today, and probably for a while to come, I'll be telling myself the same thing.

"It is not a good place to be, but I know I have to come back from it, I still believe I have something to offer this team and my county, so now is not the time to relent.

"I have to say that the support I've received has been incredible and the messages from friends, family, former team mates, players from other counties, and of course the Mayo supporters, has helped me immensely.

"I don't know where I'll be in a years time, but I do know that I'm not going to give up. I love Mayo and this team too much to do that.

"Mhaigh Eo Abú."
