RORY CARR IS currently recovering from a dislocated shoulder but the teenager has been earmarked to make an impact in 2016.
The 18-year-old St Eunan’s forward (pictured above by Geraldine Diver) was withdrawn in his club’s Ulster Club Minor semi-final win over Enniskillen Gaels in Belfast two weeks ago with the injury, having scored 1-2 in the first 20 minutes.
The Letterkenny side went onto win 4-11 to 0-8, only to lose out – without Carr – against Crossmaglen from Armagh, 4-12 to 1-6 in the final at St Paul’s.
Carr was earmarked for a first appearance for Donegal seniors in the McKenna Cup, as Donegal manager Rory Gallagher confirmed.
“Rory would definitely have made his debut in the McKenna Cup,” Gallagher said. “He has made a great impression since coming in and has played a couple of challenge games.”
However, St Eunan’s College student Carr, was today on the 16-man national shortlist of Colm Keys in the Irish Independent in regards those he sees making an impact in 2016. Keys wrote:
Rory Gallagher has been busy recruiting a wealth of young talent in the off season to freshen up his squad but Rory Carr, son of former Donegal player Paul, may be best placed to take the biggest leap, provided he can overcome a recent shoulder dislocation. Just out of minor – he has a strong physical presence for his age and could provide an outlet in the full-forward line at some stage.
