Ballyhale concern grows over Fennelly fitness for Croker clash
Michael Fennelly's participation for Ballyhale Shamrocks in Sunday's All-Ireland club hurling final is in doubt because of a knee injury sustained in the semi-final win over Ballygunner.
Shamrocks are bidding for a seventh All-Ireland title but a knee injury has restricted Fennelly's training for their game against St Thomas.'
"Michael is a key man for us," said Shamrocks manager Henry Shefflin. "He has been in situations like this before, and he has worked his way through them. We are hopeful."
The 34-year-old Fennelly managed a back injury for much of the latter part of his career but is renowned for being able to get 'match-fit' again quickly.
