Feeney comes in for injured O'Connor

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Richie Feeney has come into the Mayo starting line-up for the match against Roscommon on Sunday, in place of the injured Cillian O'Connor.

O'Connor suffered a serious shoulder injury playing for his club Ballintubber on May 25, and is facing a serious battle to be available again for Mayo in 2013. However, no official word has been given on exactly how long O'Connor is likely to be out for.

The versatile Feeney has lined out in a number of positions in the championship for Mayo, and he is equally adept in attack and defence. The Castlebar man came on the 4-16 to 0-11 win over Galway in the quarter-final in place of Alan Freeman, and scored a point.

Feeney played in last year's All-Ireland final defeat to Donegal, coming on as a substitute for Enda Varley.
