Eugene Keating has returned to the Cavan senior football panel and admits that he missed county football during his 18 months away from the panel.

Speaking to The Irish Daily Star, Keating said: “I decided I was going to go back and give it another try. I am not long finished club football here in Dublin. It was the couple of weeks off I needed.

“I am working in construction and it's getting busier and you have to consider your work as well.

“I was training and playing in Dublin and the intensity is nearly like a county team, you are training that much.

“I am looking forward to it – you miss it when you are away from it. It will be good to get back and give it a lash this year. It seems like I was away longer than a year.

“I did a gym session the other night. I don't think they'd let me stand around too long. Hopefully I'll get a game or two anyway.”

With David Givney and Seanie Johnston also back in the fold, Cavan manager Terry Hyland looks to have more attacking options for the 2016 season than he had last term.
