There are fears that Limerick defender Mike Casey may have suffered another cruciate ligament injury while playing for Na Piarsaigh in their Munster club SHC semi-final defeat to Ballygunner.

The All-Ireland winning defender limped off in the closing stages of last Sunday’s clash after injuring his right knee and faces an anxious wait after undergoing a scan to determine the extent of the damage. Casey previously ruptured his cruciate during a challenge match against Galway in October 2020 which forced him to miss that year’s Covid-delayed championship that culminated in Limerick defeating Waterford in the All-Ireland final.

He suffered further knee damage which necessitated two more operations in July 2021 and December 2021 before making a return this year and playing a key part in the Treaty County’s third All-Ireland triumph on the trot.
