Mayo midfielder Tom Parsons was moved by the amazing reception he received at the Gaelic Ground in Limerick on Saturday evening.

The thousands of Mayo supporters who made the trip south gave their stricken star a standing ovation as he arrived at the venue.

The 30-year-old is currently recovering from a devastating knee injury that he suffered in the Connacht quarter-final defeat to near-neighbours Galway.

"Before the game I felt nervous and sick. The reception I received from the Mayo people was just magic and it made me feel really at home," he said on Morning Ireland on RTE Radio One.

"That combined with the performance of the lads. I couldn't ask anymore than that."

Parsons suffered a dislocated knee and has already gone under the knife but is expected to have more surgeries during his rehabilitation.

"I'm getting more mobility. I'm still using one crutch but it's improving all the time but I'm conscious that I have more work to do but once you're up and on your feet it definitely helps," he added.

Parsons was at RTE to take part in the draw for the second round of the All-Ireland qualifiers and saw his native Mayo pitted against Liam Kearns' Tipperary in Thurles in two weeks time.

"Tipperary were one I was looking at as a very strong team. They did very well in Division Two and were unlucky not to be promoted. All-Ireland semi-finallists in 2016 and we met them there. They are obviously a very strong team.

"They would have been disappointed with their performance against Cork but it was a week after playing Waterford. They are going to be a very difficult challenge for us.

"The lads will have to prepare diligently for it."
