A teenage Antrim camogie star has been released from hospital after it was initially thought that she had received a serious injury.

Roisin McCormick was hurt while playing for her county against Westmeath in the All-Ireland Intermediate Championship at Kinnegad on Saturday.

The Loughgiel player was treated for upwards of 40 minutes on the pitch before being taken to hospital.

The match was then abandoned.

It is understood that McCormick, who had just returned to the Antrim side after missing their previous game, subsequently had scans which revealed tissue damage.

She was allowed home from hospital in the early hours of yesterday.

At the time of her injury Antrim were trailing by 3-6 to 0-9, but under protocol the match will now be rearranged for later this month.

In a statement posted on Twitter yesterday, Antrim Camogie said: "Roisin was released from hospital early today in a neck brace and is now at home in Loughgiel.

It also thanked those who helped the player after she sustained her injury.

Westmeath Camogie tweeted: "We wish the Antrim player involved a speedy recovery."
