McGrath in race against clock for Fermanagh game

McGrath in race against clock for Fermanagh game

Paddy McGrath is believed to be in a race to be fit for Donegal’s Ulster Championship quarter-final meeting with Fermanagh in Ballybofey on June 12th

The Ardara man suffered an ankle injury in the club’s championship clash with Glenswilly.

He suffered the injury before half-time and it is understood the diagnosis at the time was four weeks before he would be ready to run on it again.

Darach O’Connor returned to action for Buncrana in their league game with Burt last Sunday. He was introduced in the the second half for his first outing since undergoing cruciate surgery at the end of last season.

The Democrat has learned that he was given the all clear by the medical team. He is unlikely to be ready for the game against Fermanagh and it may be later in the summer before he is fit to challenge for a place in the team.

Meanwhile, St Eunan’s Rory Carr is back on the treatment table again this week after suffering a shoulder injury last Friday night training with the county squad. This is his second time to dislocate the shoulder this season. He only returned to training in recent weeks after dislocating it initially back in January during an Ulster Minor Club game.
