O'Mahony unsure about McDonald's participation

May 01, 2007
Mayo boss John O'Mahony has claimed that it's still too early to count Ciaran McDonald in for the Connacht SFC opener against Galway on May 20. The Crossmolina playmaker has returned to county training after a long lay-off with a back injury, but has broken down once already and O'Mahony is unsure if he'll be able to play some part against the Tribesmen. "He has made a number of attempts to refloat, this is just the latest of them. It would be far too early to say when he could resume playing," O'Mahony said. "He's been training all along between pools, gyms and everything else. He did step up last week, but it's far too early to say when he would play a competitive game. Crossmolina played at the weekend and he didn't play with them."
