One of Roscommon’s up and coming GAA stars contributed to a piece of Sigerson Cup history on Tuesday evening.

Last year’s county U-20 football captain, Colin Walsh from Oran, lined out for Maynooth University at centre-back against DCU and kicked the 19,000th point in the competition’s history during his side’s 2-17 to 1-9 defeat. Walsh’s clubmate James Fitzpatrick started the game at full-forward for Maynooth.

It has been a whirlwind few days for Walsh, having made his senior intercounty debut for Roscommon during the 3-23 to 0-21 FBD League semi-final victory against Sligo on Saturday evening last.
