Portumna’s young star
while playing for LIT against UL in the Fitzgibbon cup. He came off towards the end of the first half and early indications are that it could be serious.
It would be a major blow for Portumna in their quest for the All Ireland club title as they play Tipp champs Loughmore Castleiney next weekend. I don’t understand why club players would refrain from playing with their counties yet still play with the colleges ahead of such a huge game. Clearly the Fitzgibbon cup is taking on more and more importance every year.
Incidentally LIT drew that game with UL thanks to a late point from Willie Hyland of Laois. The result puts LIT through to the quarter finals and UL go out.
