Fitzgerald Set To Miss Opening Round Of Munster SHC After Rebel Dismissal

Clare are set to be without David Fitzgerald for the opening round of the Munster senior hurling championship.

The 2022 All Star was shown a straight red card in the closing stages of Clare’s draw with Cork in the National Hurling League.

It is understood Clare will appeal the decision, with the visit of Tipperary to Cusack Park just over a month away.


Clare boss Brian Lohan felt it was a harsh call, but says those decisions can often go against teams at the top level.

The semi-final line up is now completed, with Limerick sealing their place after a comfortable win over Wexford.

They will now take on Tipperary next weekend, while Kilkenny face Cork
