Donoghue hopeful over injuries


Galway manager Micheal Donoghue hopes Joe Canning, Gearoid McInerney and Adrian Tuohey will all be fit for Sunday's All-Ireland semi-final replay against Clare at Semple Stadium.

All three players limped out of Saturday's All-Ireland 1-30 to 1-30 semi-final draw with the Banner at Croke Park, but Donoghue is looking on the bright side despite the tight eight-day turnaround.

“Hopefully, there is nothing too bad. It is too early yet [to know]. I have hardly seen them,” Donoghue told the Irish Examiner.

All-Star centre-back McInerney suffered a calf injury after 55 minutes, Tuohey did not feature in extra-time following a back injury, while Canning suffered a knee injury in extra-time.

Conor Whelan and David Burke also suffered minor injuries, while Daithi Burke [ankle] and Johnny Glynn [knee] struggled to make it through the game.

“I give huge credit to our boys," Donoghue continued.

"We had knocks, lads sick during the week. Nothing got them down. The character that shone through for the last week has been massive. Lads that came off the bench made a massive contribution and that will stand us in good stead.

“When Clare got the goal, we went down straight away and Jayo [Jason Flynn] got the point. 

"That epitomises the character of this team. These are a massive bunch. They are really committed to the cause. They want to be as successful as they can be. They’ve massive experience and they’ll be ready to go again.

“We had chances. We were a point up. It was obvious the way James [Owens] was going, he was going to give [Clare] a chance. He did. Both teams deserve another crack at it.”
