After a lengthy delay during the second-half at Pairc Ui Chaoimh, Flynn was stretchered off the field in a neck brace following a collision with team-mate Conor Lehane.

Cork boss John Meyler said afterwards that O’Flynn was brought to hospital with a suspected concussion.

“It’s a bang to the head,” Meyler told RTÉ yesterday. “He’s probably concussed, but the medical staff are very good and he’s gone to the Regional for a CAT scan or whatever. We send him best wishes.”

Cork GAA and his club Erins Own both tweeted the news last night that the forward is expected to make a full recovery.
