O’Neill an in­jury doubt for champs

Bray People - - Sport -

DE­FEND­ING county hurl­ing cham­pi­ons Glenealy may well be without one of their top play­ers Michael An­thony O’Neill for the con­clud­ing stages of this year’s cham­pi­onship.

The 37-year-old elec­tri­cal con­trac­tor is doubt­ful if he will be ready to take his place on the team for the semi-fi­nal and fi­nal later this month af­ter rup­tur­ing a joint in his right shoul­der in a prac­tice match last week.

O’Neill picked up the shoul­der in­jury in a game against Kilmes­san in Meath but for­tu­nately sub­se­quent ex-rays have re­vealed no bone break­ages.

At the mo­ment he is un­der­go­ing physio treat­ment in UCD as he bat­tles to get back in action with his club in time for the re­main­der of the cham­pi­onship.
