CORK camogie legend Gemma O’Connor is a major doubt for the All-Ireland final against Kilkenny.

The St Finbarr’s centre-back had to be replaced in the second half of the win over Galway last weekend, and might not make it back for Sunday, September 10.

O’Connor is one of the greatest players of her generation and the hope had been she could sign off with another All-Ireland, after the disappointment of defeat and a red card against Kilkenny last year. However, she took a knock to her knee against the Tribe on Saturday night and is now waiting on a second scan to access the damage.

The Rebels are in two All-Ireland finals on the day, taking on Meath in the intermediate decider, before the showdown against the Cats.

Meanwhile, tomorrow’s two club games, Ballincollig v St Finbarr’s and Inniscarra-Courcey Rovers, have been postponed due to the trip to Croke Park.
