The forward didn't return to the field in the second half, staying in the dressing room to receive treatment, leaving Mayo fans concerned that the injury could be serious.

NUIG manager and former Mayo player Maurice Sheridan confirmed the injury and said: "It was a very hard battle but our thoughts are with Tommy Conroy.

"We don't know how bad the injury is. It is a knee injury as far as we can tell initially, but I wouldn’t like to speculate.

"I really feel for him. It should have been a free in to us, he was fouled and he injured his leg.

"These things happen, it is winter football and I just want to wish him well and hopefully it’s not too bad. Our thoughts are with him. It puts a damper on the whole evening."

Conroy played the full game just two days before against Donegal in the Allianz National League, where they drew with the Ulster side.

It's yet to be seen whether he will travel to Clones this weekend to play Monaghan, or if he will feature in the rest of the Sigerson Cup.
