Brendan Maher

Tipp hurler Brendan Maher has been ruled out of action for at least six months following confirmation that he is to have surgery on a torn cruciate ligament in his right knee

Following an injury sustained during the Munster Championship match against Clare, Tipperary's Brendan Maher will undergo surgery next month on the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in his right knee, the Tipperary County GAA Board has announced.

The Borris-Ileigh player suffered the injury late in the game at Semple Stadium last Sunday week, shortly before Clare’s Ian Galvin scored the decisive goal.  

Maher, who was one of the county’s most consistent players this season, hopes to return to action early next year but will miss all of his club’s championship campaign.

He is wished all the very best for a full recovery.
