Leitrim GAA rocked by double injury blow

Leitrim GAA has been rocked by the news that star players Emlyn Mulligan and Colin Regan have both suffered cruciate ligament injuries. 

In a devastating blow for the Melvin Gaels Club and our County, Emlyn was injured in a Club game last weekend while Colin was injured during a club training session.  Both players now face the long road of intensive rehabilitation.

Leitrim are already without the influential Declan Maxwell, who had surgery for an ongoing problem with an ankle injury last week and will be laid up for the remainder of the league.

Leitrim are already absorbing the losses through emigration of Gary McCloskey and Adrian OFlynn to London and Pat Gilmartin to New Zealand.

Leitrim GAA take this opportunity to wish Emlyn, Colin and Declan all the best in their respective recoveries.
