Players Who Had Opted Out Now Playing This Year

(Oldest Posts First)

Any news on those inter county players who had opted for the year for various reasons but are now possibly going to play? I'm thinking of Odhran MacNiallas, Gary Brennan, Michael Quinlivan, Peter Duggan, Dara McVeety, Killian Clarke, Conor Moynagh, Peter Cooke etc. etc.

Michael Quinlivan is back with Tipp, along with a few others who were unavailable earlier in the year.

I don't think Odhran will be back for us. I'd love to see it but unlikely I would say,

Ben McCormack back for Kildare. A welcome addition.

The word on the 3 Cavan lads was that the door is open for them when they return. With Covid cutting short their travels, I'd be hopeful all 3 will feature in the club championships and put their hand up for IC selection.

Yeah he was in London for a bit but with everything that went on since I think he's home again now. Gaoth Dobhair posters might be able to clarify!

We had been badly hit with opt outs and injuries this year all going well the majority of them will be back come October to give us a rare chance to pick from our strongest possible panel.

Clarke wasn't travelling, just opted out over work. Paul Fitz said on the podcast McVeety and Moynagh won't be featuring

Me. And about 15 others in my club. Back because the season is short, planned, in summer and has an end date of 2 months time. Basically, everything a player has wanted for years.
