Patrick ‘Bonner’ Maher has suffered a cruciate ligament injury, Tipperary GAA have confirmed.
The injury is set to rule the Lorrha man out for the rest of the season.
The two-time All-Star forward fell awkwardly during Sunday’s win against Limerick with a scan last night revealing he has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
Injuries to Maher and Cathal Barrett marred Tipp’s four-point victory, which set-up a repeat clash against the All-Ireland champions in the Munster final.
Barrett’s availability for that game will be determined by a scan this evening.
Following a late Monday evening scan the injury news for Patrick Maher has confirmed he has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament. Cathal Barrett will undergo a scan later this evening to access his injury and a further update should be known later tonight.
