Cork defender Brian Murphy has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a broken collarbone during a club match at the weekend.
The Bride Rovers man picked up the injury during the county senior hurling championship win over Ballinhassig at Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Sunday.
He is due to undergo an operation on Wednesday and is expected to be sidelined for three months.
Better news on the injury front for manager Jimmy Barry-Murphy, is that Pa Cronin will be available for the Munster final against Limerick after overcoming the bout of pneumonia which ruled him out of the semi-final victory over Clare.
