Olympic boxing medallists Michael Conlan and Paddy Barnes dropped into Gaelic Park last night to give the New York footballers a pep talk ahead of their Connacht SFC first round clash with Mayo on May 5.

The Belfast pair will be in action at Madison Square Garden on St Patrick's Day when Conlan puts his unbeaten record on the line against Mexican Ruben Garcia Hernandez and Barnes takes on Dallas man Oscar Mojica.
