GAA club holding vigil for minor player currently in ICU after serious south Armagh crash

Silverbridge GAA is holding a vigil in their clubrooms for an underage player involved in a serious road traffic collision in south Armagh during the early hours of this morning (Tuesday).

Mark Kelly is currently fighting for his life in the Intensive Care Unit in the Royal Hospital in Belfast.

He was involved in a single vehicle on the Drumalt Road near Silverbridge at around 4.30am.

The road had been closed right throughout the day but re-opened late this afternoon.

Silverbridge GFC posted on social media: “As most of you will already know, our minor player Mark Kelly had a car accident last night and is in the Intensive Care Unit in the Royal.

“We are holding a vigil in the clubrooms tonight at 9 pm to pray for Mark’s recovery. Everyone is welcome.”
