Brady's season over after cruciate blow

Dublin and Na Fianna will be without Tomas Brady for the rest of the year after he sustained his second ruptured cruciate in two years. Brady, who switched allegiances from the Dublin hurlers to their footballers this season, sustained the injury at training.

It is believed to be the opposite knee to his previous cruciate injury, which he suffered in June 2011 when playing championship hurling against Galway.

Brady wasn't on Dublin's bench last weekend due to a thigh injury, but was said to be challenging strongly for a place in the Dubs' side for the Leinster semi-final against Kildare on June 30.

Derry football star Eoin Bradley has also suffered the latest in a long line of injury setbacks which looks likely to rule him out of the first round of the All-Ireland Qualifiers on June 29.

The Glenullin forward damaged his shoulder during a midweek club game. A scan has confirmed it was not, as first feared, a broken collarbone, but he dislodged his AC joint and suffered other residual damage.

Kerry hurler Colm Harty has been named at centre-forward for tomorrow's Christy Ring Cup final against Down despite breaking a small bone in his foot last week.
