Inspirational Odhran has a winning team behind him

Editor's Viewpoint

Belfast schoolboy Odhran McKenna was already a winner before lifting the hurling trophy with his college team. For he was almost killed - save for the swift intervention of the first doctor on the scene - in a car crash in February. He suffered severe injuries which put him in a coma but he has made an astonishing recovery.

That is thanks to the teams backing him - his family, the medical staff at the Royal and Musgrave Hospitals and his school friends. All have encouraged and enabled him to not only regain mobility but also to play the game he loves.

He is an inspiration to his team and a remarkable young man. Congratulations Odhran.
