GAA Digest: Michael Fennelly hurt in Kilkenny National Hurling League win
Also Shefflin timetable, Harte extension and GAA shorts
Cork defender John Gardiner believes his team’s league win over Kilkenny earlier in the season played a big part in Sunday’s reversal.
He said, “Kilkenny got a bit of a rude awakening in Pairc Ui Chaoimh and you could see it there. They weren’t going to lie down. They were very, very physical.”
KILKENNY striker Henry Shefflin has admitted he is still in the dark about a date for his comeback after shoulder surgery.
“I am not going to go back playing unless I am right. I don’t think I could face another long lay-off if I got injured,” Shefflin told the Irish Independent.
“I don’t know at the minute when I might be able to return. I haven’t done enough work to know. If I got a couple of weeks of good training and felt good, I would definitely be in with a chance.”
MICKEY Harte is to remain in charge of the Tyrone football team until the end of the 2015 championship after agreeing a new deal with the county board.
Harte told tyronegaa.ie, “It is a great privilege to be asked by the county committee to take charge of the Tyrone senior football team and I gladly accepted that offer.”
“To be asked to manage the best players that your county has to offer is still a wonderful honor.”
