The All Star hurler Seamus Callanan has had a serious set back and is set to miss the entire Munster Hurling Championship. A major blow for Tipperary and their chances of lifting the Liam McCarthy Cup this July.
According to his manager Colm Bonnar, the Drom & Inch clubman has suffered an infection, after picking up a recent hand injury.
“So it’s going to be a bit longer in terms of trying to manage that injury he got. The break was bad enough, but the infection has carried through. It’s going to be very difficult for him.
The Championship gets going this weekend and it’s going to be full on for the three months with GAA action every weekend. With only three teams coming out of Munster Callanan is a huge blow for the midlands county.
