O'Shea unhappy with dive accusations


Mayo forward Aidan O’Shea has hit back at suggestions he dived to win a penalty during last weekend’s All-Ireland qualifier victory over Fermanagh.

Cillian O’Connor scored 1-05 as Mayo overcame the Lake County 2-14 to 1-12 in Round 2B of the qualifiers at MacHale Park in Castlebar last Saturday, but the real talking point was O'Shea's fall to the floor following a tangle with Fermanagh’s Che Cullen.

O’Connor converted the penalty as Mayo went on to win by five points to set up a meeting with Kildare.

And, speaking to Sky Sports after Saturday's 2-17 to 0-14 win over the Lilywhites in Castlebar, O'Shea insists he did not dive to win the penalty and his "conscience is clear".

"For me, unfortunately with the world of social media and everything like that, it’s going to be all over the place," O'Shea said.

"The disappointing part was that we had one camera angle on the thing. The national broadcaster only brought one camera down here.

"It was disappointing that there was only one camera angle to show it. Everybody gets to see something in a flash second. My conscience is clear. I didn’t flop. I’m happy enough.

"It was probably more difficult for my family over the last couple of days. I’m just happy to be back out on the field, helping my team-mates out and getting a game under the belt."
