McKAIGUE AND McMANUS TO TRAVEL TOGETHER
AFTER competing against each other in this Sunday's Ulster Club SFC semi-final, Slaughtneil's Chrissy McKaigue and Clontibret's Conor McManus will share a flight to Australia.
Ireland selector Tony Scullion has confirmed that after the game in Healy Park McKaigue and McManus will travel to Dublin and fly to Perth.
"They'll be flown out straight after the game on Sunday. They're going to miss the warm-up game. It's just a pity that way, it would be great to have them for it, but they'll be with us on Tuesday," said Scullion.
Ireland warm-up game against a semi-professional VFL team will also take place this Sunday in Melbourne.
