Morrison determined to make swift return

Conor Morrison admits that 2020 was a season that he’d targeted from way out.

However, just as matters appeared to be coming together both on and off the pitch, fate conspired against him in the most devastating fashion on an August evening in Fintra.


“It’s exactly three months from yesterday (Monday),” he said on the debilitating injuries suffered to his knee in a SFC clash away to Killybegs.

“It was August 16. When I went down, there was a pop and a sort of tear. And you just know. Usually, you get a bang and you think about getting back up. I knew I wasn’t getting back up. There was just that amount of pain.”
