LIMERICK HURLING HAS been dealt a big blow with the news that forward Peter Casey ruptured his cruciate knee ligament in last Sunday’s All-Ireland final. 

Casey scored five points from play in the first half before suffering the injury just before half-time against Cork. The Na Piarsaigh club man now awaits an ACL operation, according to a report by RTÉ Sport. 

Casey’s brother, Mike, underwent a cruciate ligament operation on his knee last November. Limerick defender Richie English also suffered the same injury last year. 

Casey enjoyed a remarkable 2021, making the most of the final after successfully appealing a red card received in the semi-final win over Waterford. He now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines and a race to be fit for the 2022 championship.
