Cosgrove head injury mars Crokes draw

FORMER Dublin footballer Ray Cosgrove was recovering in hospital last night after suffering a head injury in Kilmacud Crokes' Dublin SFC fourth-round draw against Ballyboden St Enda's.

The experienced forward was replaced after shipping a heavy knock 20 minutes into the clash at O'Toole Park.

He is expected to make a full recovery after an initial X-ray proved clear, although he will undergo further tests today.

Conal Keaney proved the hero for 2011 champions Ballyboden, nailing an injury-time free to earn his side a replay.

Reigning champions St Brigid's booked their place in the last eight with a 2-12 to 1-8 win over Thomas Davis, while Miceál McCarthy kicked 1-6 as St Sylvester's beat Bernard Brogan's St Oliver Plunkett's/ Eoghan Ruaidh 1-13 to 2-6.

Meanwhile, Ciaran Kilkenny will leave Castleknock a junior championship winner after signing off with seven points in their 2-22 to 1-7 win over Raheny. The youngster will join Australian Rules club Hawthorn over the winter.
