COROFIN have three main injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s Munster intermediate club final.

Having overcome Lorrha/Dorrha and Dromin/Athlacca by ten and four points respectively, Corofin are gearing up for a first ever Munster intermediate final where they face Cork side Castlelyons.

Tipperary’s Conor Doyle has been appointed referee for the final which commences at 6pm in the Gaelic Grounds.

There are doubts on the fitness of three regular starters for Corofin for this tie. Clare footballer Jamie Malone received a health scare which ruled him out of the semi-final win. The experienced Damian Ryan missed out on training this week with a minor niggle.

Fionn Clancy who had to task of curbing the influence of All-Ireland winner David Reidy a fortnight ago fresh from returning to Clare from Australia is also a doubt.

Speaking to The Clare Echo, Corofin manager Joe Cahill said they are awaiting more detailed reports before deciding if the trio will be on the starting team this weekend.

“We’re waiting on fitness reports for Fionn Clancy, Damian Ryan and Jamie Malone so we’re not sure what the position is with them. Fionn picked up an injury against Dromin/Athlacca and has struggled to shake it off, Damian didn’t train on Sunday morning and we’re expecting a report back on Jamie. We’re confident with the panel we have built up, it would be misfortunate to be missing anyone but someone else will get a go at it. To get a jersey on this team you have to play better than someone else, they have really adapted to that”.
