“I was off the grid” – Aidan O’Shea respond’s to Mayo criticism after club championship win

Lee Costello

“We’ve got to learn and move on.”

The club championship is underway in Mayo, as the county players look to leave their disappointment of their All-Ireland final loss against Tyrone, behind them.

Breaffy, which boasts county stars players such as Aidan O’Shea, Conor O’Shea, Rob Hennelly, and former Mayo midfielder, Seamus O’Shea, took on The Neal.

These stars came up against their county teammate Tommy Conroy, who despite being on the losing end of the game, managed to bag the man of the match award for a terrific performance.

Afterwards, TG4 interviewed the Mayo captain about his return to club football, and how he dealt with yet another All-Ireland final loss.

“When we win, when we lose, it’s not something I pay too much attention to,” said O’Shea, who scored four points for Breaffy against The Neale.

“I’ve been off the grid for the last couple of weeks. When you lose, everything is wrong; when you win, everything is right. Obviously, there’s a balance every time you play.

“We were disappointed a couple of weeks ago. We’ve got to learn and move on. Seeing the likes of Tommy (Conroy) playing here today, you see the talent that’s in the county, no doubt, we’ll pick up and go again next year.

“That’s what we’ll do, that’s what we’ve always done.”
