Boherlahan Dualla 0-5 Golden Kilfeacle 0-5

A sickening injury to Golden Kilfeacle’s Jim Bob McCarthy brought proceedings to a premature end in the County Senior Hurling Relegation Semi Final Replay on Friday night in New Inn.

The game had yet to catch fire when eight minutes after the interval McCarthy challenged for a puck out and brought the sliotar to the ground. In one motion he bent low to scoop the loose possession into his grasp and just from the nature of his body position received a challenge that caused damage to his neck. The Golden management team and medical staff deserve superb credit with the fast action they took to get the injured party into a stable position until the ambulance arrived.
