Injury concerns for Limerick ahead of club championship kick off

Limerick have some injury concerns ahead of club championship kick off.

With the Limerick hurling club Championships kicking off this weekend, John Kiely has a few injury worries ahead of the Munster Championship clash a month from today. Kiely will hope that injury doubts will be able to get some game-time for their clubs over the next fortnight.

Limerick are scheduled to face Waterford in a challenge game in Fraher Field on May 14 at 7pm. The game was originally fixed for March with proceeds going to Pieta House. The game was postponed until May due to a bereavement in Waterford.

The game will now take place less than 24 hours after the second round of the Club Championship with majority of Kiely’s squad involved in Senior or Intermediate action. Gearoid Hegarty and Stephen Cahill are the only two members of the panel playing with Junior clubs.

The key injuries concerns facing the Limerick management are Peter Casey (foot), Barry Nash (Ankle), Diarmuid Byrnes (Knee) and Declan Hannon (Chest).

Nash started the challenge against Cork last weekend but was substituted due to injury. The aforementioned trio all missed out entirely.

William O’Donoghue, Graham Mulcahy, David Dempsey and Aaron Gillane also missed last weekends clash with Cork but are all expected to feature for their clubs in the Senior Championship this weekend. In total John Kiely used 21 players against Cork.

The good news for Kiely however, was the return of key midfielder Paul Brown during the Cork game, with the Bruff man getting a 28-minute run out. Browne had been missing from the Limerick set up since re injuring his knee against Wexford in the opening league game this year.
