O'Donoghue set for second operation


James O'Donoghue is facing the prospect of missing the entire Allianz Football League campaign due to a persistent shoulder injury.

O'Donoghue missed this year's league campaign after undergoing shoulder surgery during the off season and the Legion star is almost certain to sit out next season's competition.

He damaged the same shoulder during Kerry's All-Ireland quarter-final win over Kildare before dislocating the joint while playing for his club in the Kerry SFC loss to South Kerry last month.

Having delayed surgery in order to help his club bid for the county title, O'Donoghue is expected to have the operation next week and is likely to be out until next summer.

News of O'Donoghue's surgery will come as a blow to manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice as Peter Crowley, Anthony Maher, and Paul Geaney are also likely to miss the majority of the league.
