ST EUNAN’S PLAYER RORY CARR faces the prospect of a couple of months out of action after dislocating a shoulder in yesterday’s Ulster Club Minor semi-final win over Enniskillen Gaels in Belfast.
Carr was withdrawn after 20 minutes, having scored a goal and two points to help his side lead 1-4 to 0-3. St Eunan’s went on to win 4-11 to 0-8.
Carr had been called up to the Donegal senior football panel by Rory Gallagher after impressing for the St Eunan’s seniors in their run to the Donegal SFC final this year.
Carr would have made his Donegal debut at some stage in the Dr McKenna Cup, but the 18-year-old will now spend the best part of the spring recovering from his injury set-back.
Carr was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital where he was assessed and treated before being released again yesterday evening.
“He’s going to be a big loss to us,” the St Eunan’s manager, Eddie Brennan, said ahead of the Ulster Club Minor final on New Years Day against Crossmaglen.
“It was just so unfortunate. The man was coming through and Rory had a loose arm out to make a tackle. The man’s momentum just took him through the arm.
“Rory was in a lot of pain. He has tendon damage and the shoulder is badly dislocated.
“It’s a big blow for Rory, personally, too because he’d been doing so well and was just called up to the county.
“He’ll be missed with us. His long-distance free kicking is excellent; he’s never too far away.”Tags:
