Mayo star forward Cillian O’Connor looks set for a return to competitive action against Down next Saturday week after playing in a challenge match against Clare last weekend.

The Irish Daily Star reports that O’Connor played around 20 minutes of the clash against the Banner men in what was his first appearance in a Mayo jersey in nearly seven months after having had knee surgery at the end of 2018.

Along with O’Connor, Mayo boss James Horan is still awaiting a return of midfielder Seamus O’Shea, while Donie Vaughan, Fionn McDonagh and James Carr are also making their way back to full fitness as the Westerners look for another run in the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers.
