The young defender will miss the rest of the year, with Cork boss Kieran Kingston telling the Examiner:  “The news is devastating, firstly for the player himself and it is a huge blow for us as a management team. Colm went off injured in the second-half last Saturday night and, whilst we were hoping the injury was not too serious, the scan has revealed the worst.

“He’s a big loss to our plans going forward because he was going very well."
