Michael Fennelly is OUT of the All-Ireland hurling final and is facing a very long period on the sidelines after Kilkenny confirmed he ruptured his achilles tendon in the victory over Waterford.

The Cats will play Tipperary in the decider but will do so without the power-packed Fennelly.

Fennelly pulled up as he surged forward with a little over 10 minutes remaining in the contest and was stretchered from the field in a lot of distress.

Kilkenny GAA confirmed the news on Twitter this evening.
