Kilkenny footballer togs out after car crash before Leitrim game

As commitment levels go in gaelic games, Kilkenny footballer Sarah Smith’s will take some beating.

Last Sunday, she was part of the Kilkenny football team who were making a return to the Lidl national football league in Division 4 this season.

Sarah, who’s a student in Galway, drove to the game on Sunday but her vehicle left the road en-route to the match.

The sole occupant of the car, Sarah was unhurt in the incident – and later got a lift to the venue where she played the full sixty minutes for Kilkenny.

Leitrim were decisive winners on a final scoreline of 7-26 to 0-5.

Sarah spoke to Breffni Early of after the game.
