Fennelly to miss All-Ireland final


Kilkenny forward Michael Fennelly will miss the All-Ireland final after rupturing his Achilles tendon.

Kilkenny GAA confirmed on Monday that the Ballyhale Shamrocks clubman, who suffered the injury in the Cats' thrilling two-point All-Ireland semi-final replay victory over Waterford at Semple Stadium on Saturday, will miss the final against Tipperary.

Speaking in Thurles after the win over the Deise on Saturday, Cats' boss Brian Cody refused to rule out the 2011 Hurler of the Year from the Croke Park showpiece on 4 September.

However, a Kilkenny GAA statement on Monday read: "Kilkenny GAA tonight confirm that Michael Fennelly has ruptured his Achilles tendon and is out of the All-Ireland final. We wish him well in his recovery."

Fennelly has won six All-Ireland titles and three All Stars since making his inter-county debut in 2006.
