McCarthy worry for Dublin


Dublin could be without James McCarthy for the remainder of the championship amid reports that he has suffered knee ligament damage.

McCarthy missed Sunday's Leinster SFC final win over Westmeath after injuring himself in training and there are fears that he could be sidelined for up to six weeks, which would leave him in a race to be fit for an All-Ireland SFC semi-final, should Dublin progress that far.

It had been feared that the Ballymun Kickhams clubman suffered a cruciate tear when he landed awkwardly in training last week, but scans confirmed medial ligament damage, which will keep him out for between four and six weeks.

Dublin are due to play in the All-Ireland SFC quarter-final on August 6 but McCarthy is unlikely to be fit for the game at Croke Park.

The news will come as a blow to manager Jim Gavin as he is already without Rory O'Carroll and Jack McCaffrey for the season.
