CLARE BOSS DAVY Fitzgerald has been admitted to a hospital in Dublin after a health concern.

Fitzgerald attended a Galway clinic for a check-up last night and was referred to a hospital in Dublin this morning where he is currently undergoing additional tests.

Other members of the Clare management team remain hopeful that Fitzgerald will be available this Sunday for his side’s All-Ireland Hurling Championship quarter-final against Galway in Thurles.

The 44-year-old coach — who has been in charge of the Clare hurling team since 2011 having also represented the county as a player — previously underwent minor heart surgery in 2009, when he had stents inserted into one of the arteries around his heart on account of a blockage.
