Mark McGovern, Gaelic Football Player, in Coma After Injury During Match in S.F.

An young Irish football Gaelic football player was rushed to the San Francisco General Hospital Saturday night with a critical head injury he had while playing a match in San Francisco — his first game in America.

Mark McGovern, 22, a member of the Fermanagh senior county team, was severely hurt when he “clashed” on the field with an opponent on the American team. He was in San Francisco with two other Irish football Gaelic football players for the summer as part of  the Ulster GAA club, according to Irish news outlets.

“Mark has been in a coma since,” according to a statement released by Belcoo O'Rahilly club in Fermanagh.
