So far, so good for Laois but Healy not getting carried away

Cahir Healy is hoping to make up for lost time in the Laois senior football jersey.

The talented 33-year-old swapped hurling for gaelic football last year but his involvement in the league and championship campaigns was ended by a second cruciate ligament injury.

“Yeah I went back to inter-county football in 2019 but did my cruciate and ligaments in the very first challenge game in January,” he said in an interview in today’s Irish Daily Star.

“It’s eight years since I played a Championship game so hopefully I’ll get one this year.”

The O’Moore County currently have three points from a possible four to their name in Division 2 and will welcome Cavan to O’Moore Park for this Sunday’s round 3 re-fixture (2pm).

“It’s too early to get ahead of ourselves really. We’re against Cavan this weekend and if the result goes against us, I think we can go from first in the table to fifth or sixth.

“All of a sudden, the season has a very different slant on it based on one result, so it’s very early to say ‘oh we’re having a great season’.

“A good start but it’s too early, and it’s so tight at the minute.”
