American move on cards for Diarmuid Connolly

The long-running saga of Diarmuid Connolly's Dublin absence has taken another twist amid reports that he's set to play football in the US this summer.

It's believed approaches have been made to the five-time All-Ireland SFC medallist, with Boston and New York possible destinations.

Connolly only made one cameo appearance this year, in Mayo last February, before opting out of Jim Gavin's panel.

Dublin hurling manager Pat Gilroy, his former football boss and clubmate, yesterday said: "He obviously is a loss but coming so late into the season, he probably has decided he wants a break from everything and I don't think it will do him any harm.

"With the footballers, certainly a fella of his class is going to be a loss to them, but he's not been around. They will have well and truly moved on from expecting to have him back."

If Connolly does travel to the US for summer football, he will join a host of other prominent inter-county footballers, such as Brendan Murphy and James Dolan, who have gone stateside for the summer.

The St Vincent's supremo will also be deemed ineligible to feature for Dublin footballers throughout the remainder of the season, but Connolly will be allowed to return for his club in the Dublin senior football championship.

Connolly has featured for the Marino outfit in the Dublin senior hurling league, but was not included in the Dublin squad for their Championship opener against Wicklow.
