O'Shea to miss rest of the league


Seamus O'Shea will miss the remainder of Mayo's Allianz Football League campaign through injury.

O'Shea was not included in the match-day squad for last weekend's defeat to Galway after sustaining an ankle injury in training and it has been reported that he will miss the games against Kerry on Saturday week and the final regular game at home to Monaghan on Sunday, 24 March.

The 31-year-old was introduced from the bench in the defeat to Dublin at Croke Park, but he ended up in the sin-bin after being shown a black card and the injury means he is unlikely to be available until the Connacht championship opener against New York on May 5.

Meanwhile, Cillian O'Connor could feature for James Horan's side in the game against Kerry.

O'Connor underwent knee surgery before Christmas but he is closing in on a return to action and the management team are hoping to welcome him back before the final regulation games.
