The winner of 11 All Ireland Senior Ladies Football medals, thanked the hospital staff in Adelaide where she was treated and also gave a shout out to her one-year-old son Carthach Jnr.

Bríd tweeted: “Devastated but counting my blessings. Looking forward to rehab once cleared to do so. For now, hup the drugs Thanks for all the lovely messages, to all involved with @GWSGIANTS, to the exemplary healthcare staff in Adelaide & to a little man whose hugs make everything better” 

Meanwhile, the player Ebony Marinoff who carried out the tackle on Bríd is set for a three-match ban, although her team Adelaide Crows have said they will appeal the ruling.
