Kilmacud Crokes are likely to be without talisman Paul Mannion for the rest of their season after the two-time All-Star underwent knee surgery.

Crokes cruised to a Leinster title with a seven-point win over Naas with Mannion a late withdrawal from the starting team.

Team manager Robbie Brennan said the forward failed to come through the required fitness tests and was recommended to undergo surgery, which took place on Friday.

With an All-Ireland semi-final against the Connacht champions in a fortnight and the final two weeks later, it is highly unlikely the 28-year-old will play any further role in their campaign.

Last week Mannion confirmed he has no intention to return to the Dublin set-up for the coming season.
