RISING DONEGAL football ace Conor O’Donnell has become the latest victim of the dreaded cruciate injury.
The Carndonagh man suffered a rupture of his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and faces into a nine-month recovery period.
O’Donnell is one of the brightest prospects in Donegal and had featured for the county at minor and under-20 levels.
Indeed, he was one of the leading lights for Gary McDaid’s under-20s.
The 18-year-old had also trained with Donegal’s seniors and was highly-rated by Declan Bonner.
O’Donnell had starred for his school, Carndonagh CS, and Colaiste Inis Eoghain as well as his club, Carndonagh.
Donegal senior stars Patrick McBrearty and Kieran Gillespie underwent cruciate surgery in the last year.Tags:
