Kilkenny’s All-Star forward Miriam Walsh is a serious doubt for the remainder of this year’s VERY Camogie League.
Last year’s PWC Camogie Player of the Year Miriam Walsh has emerged as a serious injury concern for Brian Dowling for the remainder of this year’s VERY Camogie League games. On Saturday last the Tullaroan native was spotted in UPMC Nowlan Park on crutches and was forced to watch her side lose out to Galway in round two.
Walsh picked up the injury in training last week and manager Brian Dowling will be hoping that the prognosis may not be too serious.
“We don’t know the full extent of the injury yet, Miriam is waiting on a scan to confirm what the issue is and we won’t know any more until she gets the results back”, Dowling told KCLR.
It would be a huge blow for the defending All-Ireland champions if the injury does transpire to be anything long-term. Hopes are high for a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland success with the Kilkenny seeking back-to-back titles for the first time since the 90s.
Defeats to Clare and Galway in the opening stages of the league see Kilkenny heading to Dublin this Saturday – without Walsh in the lineup – on the hunt for their first win of the league season. Throw-in at Parnell Park is at 2pm and we’ll be in the stands again for full coverage of the game with thanks to Market Cross Shopping Centre.
