Mayo’s Lee Keegan has revealed hat he wants to chill out during the offseason and digest the year he has had before making a decision on his inter-county future.
Speaking on The Inside Line podcast with former Dublin star Alan Brogan, the Westport man said he wants to enjoy his downtime and spend time at home over the coming months.
“It’s been a long, long season,” he said.
“It felt probably longer this year more than most because of the break from the Kerry game (All-Ireland SFC quarter-final) to the club, and then we went through the club campaign and that only finished up last week.
“I’ll take a bit of time to digest what’s gone on, review how I am, what’s priorities and what’s not priorities and make a decision.
“I know one thing, I’m going to enjoy the winter and enjoy the downtime from football.”
Keegan was central to Westport’s maiden Mayo SFC title win last month.
