Galway captain Damien Comer sent his best wishes to Mayo's Tom Parsons, who suffered a serious knee injury in their Connacht SFC quarter-final clash at MacHale Park.

Parsons was stretchered off in the second half of a narrow defeat against their old rivals, following a battle for possession with Galway defender Eoghan Kerin.

Mayo boss Stephen Rochford later confirmed that Parsons had dislocated his knee, but added that he was unsure as to the extent of the injury.

Speaking to RTÉ Sport after the game, Comer said that while he was pleased to come away with a win and a place in the Connacht SFC semi-finals, he hoped that the Mayo midfielder would make a 'speedy recovery.'

"We expected nothing less coming down to MacHale Park and really happy that we can come out with the win.

"It was nice but I've got to say best wishes to Tom Parsons, I saw his leg and it didn't look great. Obviously at the end of the day, sport is sport but you have to think of player welfare and I wish him a speedy recovery."

Reflecting on the result, which marked Galway's third successive championship win over Mayo, Comer said that his side will continue to look for quality performances this summer as they prepare to meet Sligo in the semi-final next month.

"We've done it before, we've beaten them down here but it's all about looking forward to the next game. We can't look past that and all eyes are going to be on that. As I said during the league, all we want to do is stick to the process and build consistent performances. Everyday we go out to perform and that's what we'll be looking forward to next.
