Former Derry GAA footballer, Anthony Tohill, has suffered serious facial injuries in an accident at his home.

It is believed the 41-year-old was working with a chainsaw in his garden when the incident happened earlier this week.

He was hospitalised with his injuries but has since returned home.

Mr Tohill was a member of the 1993 All-Ireland winning Derry team and was manager of the Ireland International Rules team in 2010 and 2011.

He is a senior official at Derry City Council.
