Flynn set to complete his comeback
PAUL FLYNN is expected to complete his recovery from a severe hamstring tear by starting for DCU on Saturday in their O’Byrne Cup semi-final meeting with Meath in Navan (7.30).
Dublin’s All Star wing-forward suffered the injury in Dublin’s gruelling All-Ireland semi-final victory over Donegal and was only able to play in the final with the aid of painkilling injections.
Last week at the request of Pat Gilroy, he appeared as a half-time sub for DCU in their victory over Longford and is now set to start his first match since September 18.
WESTMEATH will be without Conor Lynam for the entire 2012 season after the former under-21 star forward announced his plans to spend the second half of the year in America. Lynam plans to spend six month in the US after he graduates from college later this year and will not play in the league.
PETER CANAVAN and Mickey Harte will meet again just four days on from last night’s Dr McKenna Cup clash in Omagh which drew a crowd of 6,655. The Red Hands eventually won by 0-13 to 1-7, but Fermanagh’s two previous wins sees them qualify for the semi-finals as the best placed runners-up and so will lock horns with Tyrone this Sunday in the Athletic Grounds in Armagh at 3.45. The day’s first semi-final (also in Armagh) will feature Down and Derry (2.0).
