Antrim full forward Roisin McCormack was treated for 35 minutes before the ambulance arrived at Kinnegad

Antrim camogie has provided a positive update on the condition of Róisín McCormick whose neck injury caused the abandonment of last Saturday's All-Ireland intermediate championship game against Westmeath in Kinnegad.

The full forward took a heavy knock in the seventh minute of the second half with the home side leading 3-6 to 0-9, and was treated on the pitch for 35 minutes before an ambulance arrived, at which point the match was abandoned by Cork referee Cathal McAllister.

After spending the night in the Midland Regional Hospital in Mullingar, the Loughgiel Shamrocks player was discharged yesterday morning with her neck in a brace. Antrim have thanked all who assisted Róisín.
