Galway star Joe Canning and Limerick sharpshooter Aaron Gillane were both in hospital last night after being injured in Sunday's All-Ireland senior hurling semi-final at Croke Park, with Limerick forward Gillane kept overnight.
Canning suffered a concussion after he shipped a heavy blow in a collision with Joseph Cooney late in the game.
Gillane is being kept in for observation with a back injury.

Appearing on The Sunday Game, Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald waxed lyrical about the Tribe's sensational forward.
"The best forward I've ever come across," Fitzgerland beamed.
"He has a pair of hands that are gold, he can do anything with them. I just wish tonight that Joe makes a speedy recovery, gets back playing again because there's only one Joe Canning and we'd love to see him back playing again."
Limerick booked their place in the All-Ireland final with Waterford next month after a three-point win over the Tribesmen.
