Ellis suffers broken arm


Mark Ellis will miss the remainder of Cork's Allianz Hurling League campaign after sustained a broken arm in the Division 1A defeat to Dublin on Saturday.

The Millstreet clubman was injured in the latter stages of the 4-21 to 2-17 defeat at Croke Park and will undergo surgery on Tuesday.

He will definitely miss the remainder of the league and manager Kieran Kingston has revealed there is a danger he might not be back before Cork play Tipperary in the Munster SHC.

"It’s another shocking blow for us, coming on the back of the long term injury to Colm Spillane and the expectation is that he will be out for some time and might even be a doubt for the championship game with Tipperary," Kingston told the Evening Echo.

In a further blow to Cork, Cian McCarthy is set for a few weeks on the sidelines with a broken thumb and finger.

"Cian broke his thumb in a club game with Sars and didn’t know about it for a few days while he broke his finger in training with us last week. That’s another blow but at least he won’t be unavailable as long as Mark," Kingston confirmed.

"Aidan Walsh had an operation on his nose injury but he remains on the doubtful list for next Saturday night against Kilkenny while Alan Cadogan remains suspended for that game."
