NAOMH Conaill are hopeful that Eoghan McGettigan will be available for Saturday evening’s Ulster club SFC semi-final against Clontibret.
The Donegal champions take on their Monaghan counterparts in Omagh (7pm, live on TG4).
McGettigan missed Naomh Conaill’s quarter-final win over Castlerahan.
However, having been back running last weekend, McGettigan is in the frame to return to return to action at Healy Park.
“Eoghan is very close,” Naomh Conaill manager Martin Regan said.
“We’re hoping he’ll get a full session in beforehand. If he’s not fit to start, he’ll play some part.”
McGettigan has been highly influential for the Glenties men this year. His early-season form prompted a call from Donegal manager Declan Bonner and McGettigan was to the fore as Naomh Conaill regained a hold of Dr Maguire following a three-game marathon against Gaoth Dobhair.
Regan said: “Eoghan has been excellent. Since we started training in February, he has hardly missed a session.
“For the first three months, he was our best attender and was really driving things on. He got called into the county panel and we missed him.
“He has put in a remarkable effort and this is the first year that he has been injury free.
“He has had a tough time in recent years, but it’s good to se him get that run of games now. He’ll be a serious talent, for club and county.”Tags:
