Clare's Shane O'Donnell set to miss 2019 season due to Harvard studies

It was announced that he has been awarded a prestigious year-long Fulbright Scholarship.

CLARE HURLER SHANE O’Donnell is likely to miss at least a considerable portion of the 2019 GAA season, after it was announced that he has been awarded a prestigious year-long Fulbright Scholarship to Harvard University in the US, starting September 2018.

The hurling star, who has graduated with a degree in Genetics and is due to undertake a PhD in UCC, retweeted the news from his official Twitter account today.

He will be a loss to the Clare hurlers if he misses much or all of the 2019 season as expected.

O’Donnell, who was in action last Monday in the league quarter-final against Limerick, was Clare’s All-Ireland final hero of 2013, registering 3-3 in the replay win over Cork.

Prior to that achievement, he also picked up All-Ireland U21 medals in 2013 and 2014.
