One key member of Brian Lohan’s Clare senior hurling panel sustained a serious injury this week.

Captain John Conlon picked up a knee injury at training on Tuesday night when Lohan and his management team of Sean Treacy, James Moran, Ken Ralph and Keith Carr were putting the panel through their paces.

The Clare Echo understands that Conlon damaged his knee while training on the 4G pitch at the University of Limerick. The extent of his injury is unknown as of yet with the Clonlara attacker due to undergo a scan on Wednesday.

However, those that witnessed the incident are fearful that the 2018 All Star is set for a spell on the sidelines. Wednesday’s scan will determine how much of their Munster championship bid he will be absent for. Clare take on All-Ireland champions in Semple Stadium on May 17th in their opening outing of the 2020 Munster SHC.

A member of the county senior panel since 2009 when he received the call-up from then manager, Mike McNamara, Conlon has made 42 championship appearances for Clare scoring 6-81. He succeeded Patrick O’Connor as captain when Lohan gave him the prestigious role in January.

Following the introduction of a blanket ban on GAA activities, it remains to be seen when Clare’s Allianz National Hurling League semi-final which was originally scheduled for March 22nd will now take place.
