John Kiely expects Cian Lynch to be fit for Limerick’s Munster SHC Round 4 clash with Tipperary at FBD Semple Stadium on May 21.

The former Hurler of the Year was withdrawn during last Saturday evening’s epic battle with Clare at the TUS Gaelic Grounds with a hamstring injury which Kiely has described as being “minor”. However, the Limerick manager isn’t sure if Sean Finn – who is due to have a scan on the knee injury he picked up against the Banner – will be available for the next round.

"Cian has a minor hamstring injury, he should be flying again in the next week or two," Kiely told RTÉ at the launch of the Dillon Quirke Foundation fundraising drive yesterday.

"Seán has a scan this afternoon so hopefully tomorrow we'll have a clearer picture on that."

The 2-20 to 1-24 defeat ended the All-Ireland champions’ 17-match unbeaten run in the championship stretching back to the 2019 All-Ireland semi-final, while it was their first defeat in the Munster series since 2018.
