Shane O’Donnell has been ruled out of Clare’s Munster senior hurling quarter-final with Waterford on Sunday.
The Éire Óg clubman sustained an injury in the lead-up to Clare’s final National Hurling League clash with Kilkenny. O’Donnell was not include in Brian Lohan’s twenty six for this tie.
On Tuesday night, Club Clare confirmed that the 2013 All-Ireland winning hat-trick hero would miss the Waterford game “through injury”.
O’Donnell’s absence will come as a major blow to the Banner who are already without former captain Patrick O’Connor.
Other injury concerns are to be assessed in the coming days before the matchday panel is announced.
