Basketball injury rules Mayo's Aidan O'Shea out of beginning of National League campaign
Aidan O'Shea will miss the start of Mayo's national league campaign because of an ankle injury picked up playing basketball.
Mayo manager Stephen Rochford has confirmed the former All-Star will miss Saturday's clash against Monaghan in Castlebar.
But he is hopeful the 26-year old, who linked up with the EJ's Sligo All-Stars during the winter, will recover in time for the trip to play Kerry the following week.
O'Shea wore a moon boot to protect his injured ankle when attending EJ's Sligo All-Stars Division One final loss to Neptune on Saturday night at the National Arena.
