Jim Gavin Confirms Diarmuid Connolly Is Back Training With Dublin

Jim Gavin has confirmed that Diarmuid Connolly is back training with the Dublin senior football panel.

Speaking to Dubs TV on Sunday morning, Gavin casually mentioned that Connolly is once again involved with his team.

"Last night's game was tough," said Gavin regarding Saturday night's Super 8s victory over Cork.

"There are a lot of tired bodies. The guys will get as much recovery as they can. They all go back to work on Monday morning.

"We'll try to get a couple of sessions in this week.

"We had James McCarthy back on the pitch, Eoin Murchan, Jonny Cooper. Diarmuid Connolly is back training with us. Robbie McDaid is back. Darren Gavin is coming back as well this week.

"There's a whole host of players who are returning to play."

Five-time All-Ireland winner Connolly last played for Dublin in a National League game against Mayo last year.

He spent last summer playing with Donegal Boston in the US and had been expected to do the same again this year but complications arose.
