O'Curraoin taking a month out

Galway football manager Kevin Walsh has denied reports that Fiontain O'Curraoin has quit the panel ahead of the Connacht SFC.

O'Curraoin struggled with groin and hip problems during the Allianz Football League and he has opted to take a month out in a bid to recover from the injuries.

It is unclear whether he will be available for the Connacht SFC semi-final against either London or Mayo on June 18 but Walsh insists he is still a member of the Galway panel.

"Fiontan is finding it hard to shrug off a groin strain that bothered him right through he league so he is taking a fee weeks out now to see how it goes," Walsh said at the launch of the Connacht SFC.

"He was supposed to be playing in Cavan, but he came off in the game before it. There is lots of stuff going on with that groin injury so he is just looking at things to try to get a strategy to clear things up.

"At the minute he will be taking a month out."

Cathal Sweeney is also a doubt for the Connacht opener as he struggles with injury.

"Cathal Sweeney is definitely under pressure. He hurt his shoulder a couple of weeks ago in a club game," Walsh is quoted as saying in the Irish Independent.
