Galway manager Pádraic Joyce has confirmed that forward Damien Comer will miss Sunday's Connacht final clash with Mayo, but suggested he would be back in time for an All-Ireland semi-final, if Galway get there.
The Annaghdown man was an All-Star nominee in 2016 and 2018 but missed last year’s provincial championship due to injury and will suffer the same fate this year.
It's understood he sustained a hamstring injury three weeks ago, so will not feature in Sunday's Connacht final.
Padraig Joyce also told RTE that Eamonn Brannigan, Damien Varley and Ronan Steed are all also injury concerns ahead of Galway’s first provincial final meeting with Mayo since 2014.
The game throws in at 1.30pm Sunday in Pearse Stadium , Salthill, and will be live on Midwest Radio Sport with thanks to Ballintubber Store & Agri.
Mayo will be appearing in their first provincial final for five years after their six point win over Roscommon on Sunday.
