MICHEAL DONOGHUE HAS confirmed that Galway defender Paul Killeen suffered a cruciate knee injury against Dublin yesterday.

It’s a major setback for the Tribesmen who must plan without the corner-back for the remainder of the campaign.

Killeen was helped off the field in the 26th minute of their Leinster SHC quarter-final win over Dublin and replaced by John Hanbury.

“It is now confirmed that Paul has suffered a cruciate injury which will rule him out of action for the remainder of the season,” Donoghue said in a statement.

“On behalf of the Galway Senior Hurling Panel and Management Team we would like to wish Paul our very best wishes for a speedy recovery and I ask that all of us offer our full support and best wishes to Paul.”
