John Galvin will sit out the Allianz Football League and consider his inter-county future with Limerick.

The 33-year-old Croom clubman didn’t join up with the squad before Christmas and has extended his leave from the panel.

Limerick manager John Brudair said in the Irish Examiner: “John has taken further time out to consider his future.

“He will miss the opening rounds of the national league and he is to let us know then on what he is doing.

“Jim O’Donovan and Stephen Lavin are also taking time out to consider their futures. They will also let us know in the coming weeks. Stephen Lucey is on holidays but once he returns he will link back in with the squad.”

Limerick face Sligo in the League opener at the weekend and Brudair added: “We have a tough test against Sligo this weekend. Their record at home is excellent.

“We are back up in Division 3 for the first time in years and we want to ensure we are there next year.

"If a chance comes along we get ourselves into a promotion spot, or within sight of one, we will do our best to grab it.”
