Huge blow for Brian Cody as Kilkenny confirm that Michael Fennelly has achilles injury
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.
