“The most important thing for John is to get the support and care he needs to aid his recovery”
Ireland all-rounder John Mooney has returned home from the national team’s ongoing tour of the Caribbean with a stress-related illness.
Cricket Ireland chief executive Warren Deutrom revealed that Mooney has been dealing with the condition for an unspecified amount of time, but added that his condition had worsened in the last 24 hours.
“John Mooney is an incredibly passionate cricketer who has performed with distinction for Ireland over more than a decade,” Deutrom said via a press release. “However, cricketing matters come a poor second where health issues are concerned. The most important thing for John is to get the support and care he needs to aid his recovery. Cricket Ireland will endeavour to do all that it can to aid this process. John and his family has asked for privacy while he recovers and I would urge everyone to respect their wish at this difficult time.”
