Galway's Aidan Harte an injury doubt before Leinster hurling final
Attacker Tadhg Haran is also out for the season with cruciate ligament damage.

GALWAY’S AIDAN HARTE is a major doubt for Sunday week’s Leinster senior hurling decider against either Kilkenny or Dublin.

The versatile Harte faces a race to be fit for the Croke Park clash on July 7th after suffering a suspected broken finger.

Harte was a key figure in Galway’s provincial semi-final triumph over Laois, where he played at left half-back, and his injury will be assessed further in the coming days.

The Gort club man did not feature in last year’s All-Ireland draw final or replay against Kilkenny but has moved back into contention for a starting berth into Anthony Cunningham’s team this year.

Harte was part of the Galway minor side that lost the 2006 All-Ireland hurling final against Tipperary but came on as a substitute a year later for the county U21 team when they won All-Ireland honours against Dublin in the decider.

Anthony Cunningham’s Tribesmen will definitely be without cruciate ligament victim Tadhg Haran for the game.

The Liam Mellows attacker won’t be available for the remainder of the summer.

He was a panellist on last year’s side that reached the All-Ireland final after impressing when scoring 1-3 for the Galway side that defeated Dublin in the 2011 All-Ireland U21 decider.
