Good news for Jack Kavanagh and Swinford BC, but not so great for Pearce Rowley.

Kavanagh has passed a late fitness test ahead of tomorrow’s Mayo Championships in Westport. An injury in the Mayo v Clare inter-county last weekend had seemed to thwart Kavanagh’s chances of defending the title he won last year. But a better than expected recovery means that Kavanagh will weigh in tomorrow morning.

Pearce Rowley hasn’t been so lucky and injury will force him out of these championships. Rowley’s focus will now turn towards other goals.
