Big hopes: Conleith Gilligan is hoping to see a bright future for club and county

Lockdown is a word which has not occupied any great degree of status in the sporting dictionary of Conleith Gilligan.

The GAA remains at a standstill in terms of playing games but former Ballinderry Shamrocks and Derry player Gilligan is preoccupied with making behind the scenes preparations for the return to competitive club action at the end of next month.

Even before the curtain came down on the fixtures programme in March, Kilcoo assistant boss Gilligan had already taken in three of the club's reserve team games in tandem with manager Mickey Moran as they continued to assess emerging talent.
