“Cian is making fantastic progress through his rehab and hasn’t had any setback throughout the process. The medical team have worked wonders with him, they set a plan and the timeline is bang in place,”

“He’s re-engaged with training so the next week to ten days are going to be key in terms of his involvement on the day, but in terms of where we want him to be, he’s exactly there.

“That was always the hope, the plan. Obviously, we’re not entirely through that plan yet, but we’re very happy with where we are right now.”

Kiely also confirmed that Peter Casey and Barry Murphy -who both fell foul to cruciate injuries last summer – are now back in full training and available for selection.

“Thankfully the injury list isn’t very long, we’re in a very good place,” said Kiely. “We came out of the Munster final without major difficulties and having the extra time gave time to get a bit of rest.”

“The headline ones are Peter and Barry have done fantastically well and have resumed full training in recent weeks – they’re available for selection and that’s where they’re at. They have fully completed their recovery.

“It’d be remiss of me not to say how hard they’ve worked to put themselves in that position, they’ve worked tremendously hard. The medical team – with Cairbre O’Caireallain, Mark Melbourne, Dr James Ryan and Sean McAuliffe. They’ve worked really hard to get those lads back to the condition they’re in.”
