Hannon limped off in the provincial final and won’t be recovered in time for the July 8 meeting against Tipperary or Galway.
Limerick will be without captain Declan Hannon for their All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship semi-final next month.
On their website, Limerick GAA confirmed the news with the Adare man to miss out with a knee injury sustained in the Munster final win over Clare.
Hannon limped off on that occasion and won’t be recovered in time for the July 8 meeting against Tipperary or Galway, who meet this weekend.
In the statement, it said,
“Declan sustained a knee injury during last Sunday’s Munster Final that will rule him out for the All-Ireland semi-final in three weeks time. We wish him well in his recovery in the coming weeks and look forward to seeing him back on the field once again.”Limerick GAA
Last year Hannon made history as the first captain to lift the Liam MacCarthy title on four different occasions.
He then become one of four current Limerick players to collect a sixth Munster title earlier this month following the win over Clare.
The Adare native has almost been an ever present since his championship debut in 2011, missing just one game in that time, the 2019 Munster round robin loss to Tipp.
In his absence in the provincial decider, Kyle Hayes stepped in at centre back with Colin Coughlan coming in at wing back. The Ballybrown native has yet to make a championship start. Limerick are also without four time All-Star Sean Finn who suffered a cruciate knee injury in the first clash with Clare.
Tipperary and Galway meet this Saturday to determine who faces Limerick in the All-Ireland last four on July 8.
