Corn Uí Mhuirí final postponed after serious injury to young player

The Munster Colleges body confirmed yesterday that the game had been put off due to “unforeseen circumstances” and would now be played at a later date.

The decision to postpone the final was taken after the condition of a 14-year-old Dingle school player deteriorated in the wake of a freak accident during a colleges football game on Thursday.

Pobal Scoil were playing in a Russell Cup (Kerry U15 football) game against St Brendan’s when two of their players accidentally collided, resulting in what appears to have been a serious head injury to one of them.

He was taken to Kerry General Hospital but his condition has deteriorated in the meantime, it is understood.
