Relief over Aaron Elliot's recovery

There will be enormous relief that the Tyrone-born GAA player Aaron Elliot has made remarkable progress since he suffered serious head injuries when he was struck by a car in the US.

Mr Elliot (22) travelled from Clonoe to play for the Kevin Barry's club in Philadelphia earlier this year, but needed emergency surgery after the accident two weeks ago.

However, as we report today, he is making an excellent recovery and was even able to get to his feet when the international UFC star Eddie Alvarez paid a visit to his hospital.

Mr Elliot has displayed great courage and all those who have helped to cover his medical bills through an online fund-raising campaign also deserve considerable credit.
