AS FEARED, Peter Casey sustained a season-ending injury in Sunday’s runaway Munster Senior Hurling Championship win over Tipperary at the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick GAA has confirmed.

Casey suffered the injury blow as he struck home a smashing goal that killed off the feeble challenge of the visitors.

In a statement, Limerick GAA said: “Following a scan, we can confirm that Peter suffered a broken ankle which will require surgery in the coming days.”

It continued: “Limerick county board/senior hurling management team want to wish Peter all the best in his recovery and we will ensure that he will receive the best possible care over the coming weeks and beyond as he begins the journey to full recovery and resumption of his playing career.”

The media message said Limerick also wished to thank their own medical team, the Tipperary medical team, the stadium medics, the staff at UHL and An Garda Síochána.
