Galway hurler Iarla Tannion injured

Updated: May 12, 2011

Galway full-forward Iarla Tannian looks set to miss most of the Leinster hurling championship after sustaining a serious hand injury.

Tannian was one of his county’s stars during the national league and scored 2-11 from play in five games. The player broke a thumb and ruptured ligaments in a recent club game and will miss at least seven or eight weeks of the new season.

The 27-year-old was playing for Ardrahan against Kiltormer in the Galway senior hurling championship on Sunday evening,when he picked up his injuries.

“He broke a thumb and ruptured ligaments,” said Galway boss John McIntyre. Tannion will definitely miss the Tribesmen’s opening game on June 4th and looks unlikely to make their semi-final against Dublin or Offaly two weeks later,should they progress.
