Lee Keegan

  • Lee Keegan believes the vast majority of inter-county players want the GAA to make a call sooner rather than later on whether there will be a championship in 2020.

    The most recent Croke Park position indicated October as the earliest possible starting point for an inter-county resumption, while GAA president John Horan has placed a major doubt over any Gaelic games while social distancing remains a public health priority.

     

    The 2016 footballer of the year told 2FM's Game On says every player would love a call sooner rather than later,

    "Not even to put us out of our misery. Probably just to give us something in mind.

    "So, if they’re pulling the year this year, at least then we have a target of potentially going back next year. Or if they’re saying we’re going back in October, that’s near enough definite.

  • Lee Keegan is likely to miss Mayo's Connacht Championship quarter final with Galway.

    The former footballer of the year suffered a dislocated shoulder during Mayo's Division One defeat to Tyrone last week.

    It's understood that Cillian O'Connor will be fit in time for the May 13th meeting at MacHale Park, despite sustaining a hamstring injury last weekend.

  • Lee Keegan is set to miss Mayo’s round 4 qualifier clash with Galway on Saturday due to an ankle injury.

    The former Footballer of the Year had to be helped off the pitch and though the Mayo management is remaining tight-lipped about his prospects of facing the Tribesmen, he isn’t expected to feature.

    Jason Doherty and Brendan Harrison also picked up knocks against Armagh last weekend but it is likely that both will feature at the Gaelic Grounds.

    Keegan adds to manager James Horan’s significant injury headache. Midfielders Tom Parsons, Seamus O’Shea and Matthew Ruane are all long-term injury absences and they were joined by captain Diarmuid O’Connor, who broke his wrist in training last week.

    "During Saturday night's game with Armagh both Lee Keegan and Jason Doherty suffered ankle injuries," said a Mayo statement.

    "Both players were immediately assessed by the Mayo senior medical team and they are now working on their rehab programmes.

    "As with any injury or medical intervention the privacy and confidentiality from a medical perspective is important for the players in allowing them the time for a full recovery. We will monitor their progress closely over the coming weeks."

     

  • Mayo have been handed an injury boost ahead of their qualifier with Limerick on June 9th.

    Manager Stephen Rochford has confirmed that Lee Keegan will be fit for the game against Limerick at the Gaelic grounds the weekend after next.

    Speaking at AIB’s launch of a new 5 year sponsorship of the All Ireland senior football Championship Rochford said a few players are returning to fitness.
