Fermanagh GAA player in coma after incident in USA


Mark McGovern Mark McGovern has played inter-county football for Fermanagh

A Fermanagh GAA player is in a coma in hospital in the United States after suffering a brain injury in an off-the-ball incident during a game.

Mark McGovern, 22, was playing his first match for Ulster San Francisco.

Deirdre Donnelly from the Fermanagh County Board says that McGovern's condition has "improved slightly" but he is said to be "critical but stable".

The Belcoo O'Rahilly's clubman arrived in the USA last week for a three-month stint with the San Francisco outfit.

He was accompanied by two other members of his club, Emmet Scallon and Ciaran Flaherty.

McGovern is believed to have clashed with a player from the opposing Celts side, which is made up mostly of US-born players, on Saturday night.

He was given immediate medical assistance at the scene and put into a medically induced coma, from which he has yet to emerge.

He is currently in the intensive care wing of San Francisco General Hospital, where members of his family have flown out to be at his bedside.

McGovern played for Fermanagh in a McKenna Cup game against Tyrone earlier this year and is on the fringes of the county's senior team.

A statement from Belcoo O'Rahilly's read: "The club would like to ask all its members to keep Mark McGovern and his family in our thoughts and prayers.

"Mark suffered a severe head injury during his debut for Ulster San Francisco on Saturday night and he has been in a coma since.

"Two other Belcoo players, Emmet Scollan and Ciaran Flaherty, were playing the the same game and they have been at Mark's bedside since.

"Messages of support have been overwhelming but we would like to keep the three lads in our prayers and we hope Mark comes around shortly and he can make a full recovery.

"Mark is an exceptionally talented footballer and one of our most decorated young players."
