EOIN Brosnan looks like he will miss out on Dr Crokes O'Donoghue Cup final this Sunday and the club's All-Ireland Club quarter-final trip to London a week later becuase of the injury he suffered in last Sunday's Munster final.
Brosnan, who is in line to win his tenth East Kerry SFC medal, pulled up in the first half with what appeared to be a reoccurence of a calf injury and had to come out of the game immediately. Comanager Vince Casey confirmed to The Kerryman on Tuesday that Brosnan wil be out of acrtion until the new year.
"In an ideal world you would like to have the weekend off before London (versus Tir Chonaill Gaels) but the players are as anxious to play the O'Donoghue Cup Final as much as anyone else in the club. Only if we had any injury worries about starting players would we consider resting them, but in Eoin's case he is out for the rest of the year so that is taken out of our hands.
Casey, who is also club chairman, said the cost and logistics of the trip to London are more than the club bargained for.
"It's certainly more expensive than what Croke Park told us it would be anyway. We did hardly any celebrating on Sunday night because we were checking everything out between making sure all the players' passports are valid to seeing what hotels are available to stay.
It's such an expensive trip before Christmas that we will only be able to bring a small crowd of supporters to the game," Casey said.
