From today's Indo, thought we'd seen the last of this joker. Even his family probably don't care that he's back:
'Doc' back to cure Wexford hurlers' ills
Thursday February 15th 2007
WEXFORD have received a major boost with the return of David 'Doc' O'Connor. after a three-month world trip. The big corner-back arrived home on Sunday and trained with the Wexford panel on Tuesday, but his return to the starting line-up is likely to be delayed for a few weeks.
The Slaneysiders will be without Declan Ruth, Paul Carley (shoulder), Darren Stamp (three broken fingers), Kevin Cavanagh (hernia) and Willie Doran (groin) for Sunday's NHL clash with Waterford at Wexford Park.
The visitors will be without Paul Flynn, Tony Browne and injured duo Eoin Murphy and Dave Bennett.
Cork introduce two newcomers, Patrick Cronin (Bishopstown) and Eoghan Murphy (Erin's Own) for their Pirc U Chaoimh fixture with Offaly, who will be without defender David Franks (groin) and will give full-forward Joe Brady a fitness test tomorrow.
Limerick, who introduce newcomer Mike Fitzgerald (Doon) at wing-forward, won't be able to call on defenders Seamus Hickey (knee) and Gavin O'Mahoney (thigh) as well as forwards Brian Begley (groin), Pat Tobin (shoulder) and Donncha Sheehan (pneumonia) for the Nenagh clash with neighbours Tipperary.
WEXFORD (SH v Waterford) - D Fitzhenry, M Travers, R Kehoe, P Roche, D Lyng, K Rossiter, C Kenny, T Mahon, R McCarthy, M Jacob, E Quigley, M Doyle, M Jordan, R Codd, R Jacob.
