Hennessy poised for Tipperary return

Updated: May 8, 2012

Declan Ryan has received some good news ahead of the championship with the return of Seamus Hennessy to hurling. Hennessy made his return as a 42nd minute substitute with his club (Kilruane McDonaghs) last weekend after a knee cartilage injury which resulted in him missing all of the 2011 championship.

The Kilraune man enjoyed a successful year in 2010 which saw him win a Fitzgibbon Cup at wing back with NUIG. Also that year he came on as a second half substitute to score a point from midfield as Tipperary beat Kilkenny to win their 26th All-Ireland Final. A week after that win, Hennessy scored three points from midfield as Tipperary defeated Galway in the under-21 All-Ireland Final.

The versatility of Hennessy is a much needed boost for the Tipperary squad since the retirement of Benny Dunne who covered as a defender and a forward during his inter-county career.
