Mortimer leaves Mayo panel
GAA: Conor Mortimer may have played his last game for Mayo after he walked away from the county panel today. The 28-year-old cited personal reasons for his decision which came after he was again left out of the side for this Sunday’s Connacht final.
Mortimer had only been named among the substitutes for the semi-final win over Leitrim last month by manager James Horan and is understood to have missed last night’s training session ahead of the final with Sligo.
“Conor Mortimer has left the current Mayo panel for personal reasons,” the Mayo county board confirmed this evening. “He is a fantastic footballer and the door is always open to footballers playing club football at the required high standard.“
Mortimer, whose brothers Trevor and Kenneth also represented their county, is Mayo’s all-time leading scorer and was one of the most experienced players on the current panel.
