McInerney a serious doubt for Limerick clash
By Cian O'Connell
Galway manager Henry Shefflin says Gearoid McInerney 'is a serious doubt' ahead of the July 3 All Ireland SHC semi-final against Limerick at Croke Park.
The Oranmore-Maree clubman suffered a knee injury during Galway's quarter-final success over Cork at FBD Semple Stadium on Saturday.
"Gearóid had a scan on his knee on Sunday," Shefflin confirmed at a media briefing in Loughrea on Monday.
"The initial prognosis is that it’s not going to be a long-term injury and won’t require surgery, which is good for Gearóid first and foremost.
"He’s probably going to have to go back and get it looked at later this week to get a better picture. It’s very early yet, we don’t know how quickly the strain on the knee will recover.
"But look, as regards the Limerick match, he is a serious doubt. I’d be fully confident in Gearóid that he will do absolutely everything he can to get back. But realistically we won’t know until late next week."
