KIERAN DONAGHY COULD be set to miss Kerry’s Munster championship campaign after suffering a suspected dislocated shoulder in a club game yesterday.

Donaghy sustained the injury while in action for Austin Stacks in their 0-11 to 1-8 draw against Milltown/Castlemaine in the county senior football club championship in Connolly Park in Tralee.

The Kingdom forward now faces the prospect of 10 weeks on the sidelines and the news is another major injury setback for the player. Donaghy has missed Kerry’s entire season to date due to a groin injury and yesterday had marked his comeback.

The Irish Examiner reports that the player underwent a scan at Kerry General Hospital last night and the results of that are expected to be known today.

Kerry already have to plan without Colm Cooper for the 2014 season due to a torn cruciate ligament injury. Their opening provincial tie is on the weekend of June 21st-22nd at the Munster semi-final stage against Clare or Waterford.
