MAYO FOOTBALLER CONOR Mortimer has walked out on the inter-county senior panel, the Mayo GAA County Board confirmed this evening.

A statement issued this evening read:

“The Mayo GAA County Board can confirm that due to personal reasons, Conor Mortimer has decided to leave the current Mayo Senior Football Panel.

“The Management, Players and Mayo County Board would like to take this opportunity to thank Conor Mortimer for his services this year to Mayo GAA and indeed for his services throughout the years.

“Conor has been a great servant to Mayo football and his contributions will live long in the hearts in Mayo people. We would also like to state the the door is always open for any player who is showing the skills, commitment, ability, and passion for Mayo GAA now and in the future.”

The 28-year-old forward, who didn’t start the Connacht SFC semi-final win over Leitrim and only came on as a substitute after 53 minutes, was not present at training last night.

He had again been left out of the starting line-up by manager James Horan for Sunday’s provincial final with Sligo.
