Cunningham 'heartbroken' to miss Deise semi-final

Clare face Waterford in Thurles on Sunday

Clare forward Aaron Cunningham is"heartbroken" at missing Sunday’s Munster SHC semi-final against Waterford.

Cunningham will miss the match at Semple Stadium after suffering a hamstring injury during the The Wolfe Tones' Clare SHC victory over Newmarket-on-Fergus two weeks ago.

"At the time, I didn’t think it was as bad, but a scan confirmed it was worse than I thought. I will play no part on Sunday,” he told the Clare Champion.

"It’s heartbreaking, especially having played the last couple of games when things had started to go reasonably well. I was looking forward to this a lot more than in the past. Look, I can’t dwell on that now. I must be positive and help the lads as much as possible.

"As soon as we Clare and Waterford both qualified for the league final, people were talking about two legs and then, with the draw, it was about three legs. This will be a huge battle as there is nothing between the teams. It will come down to small margins and I would like to think that we have an edge.”

Banner forward John Conlon is set to play in Thurles after recovering from a collapsed lung he suffered in the Allianz League semi-final victory over Kilkenny.

Maurice Shanahan and Colin Dunford return to the Deise full-forward line in place of Tom Devine and Jake Dillon, as manager Derek McGrath makes two changes from the side that started the Allianz League Division 1 final replay 2-19 to 1-23 defeat to the Banner County.

Waterford (SHC v Clare): Stephen O’Keeffe; Shane Fives, Barry Coughlan, Noel Connors; Tadhg de Burca, Austin Gleeson, Philip Mahony; Jamie Barron, Darragh Fives; Kevin Moran, Shane Bennett, Michael Walsh; Patrick Curran, Maurice Shanahan, Colin Dunford.
