Kerry Senior Football Team Injury Update 2015-08-13 23:54:00

Fitzmaurice - Michael Geaney Out for the Year But O’Donoghue ‘’Making Progress’’

By John Ivory, Reporting from the Kerry Senior Football Team Press Briefing.

Kerry manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice has revealed he will not be able to call on the services of Michael Geaney for Kerry’s All-Ireland semi-final game with Tyrone after the Dingle man injured his back in the lead up to Kerry’s emphatic quarter-final win over Kildare.
‘’Unfortunately this week, we got news on Mikey Geaney and he has a back injury. He’s out for the rest of the season.
The injury - one Geaney has had before - flared up on the eve of the quarter final win and Fitzmaurice was sympathetic to the Dingle man at a press conference Thursday night.
‘’So, a big loss to us. A very important guy to the squad and a great personality, great character, good player for us and he’s out for the rest of the season, which is a big disappointment to himself obviously.’’

There was some positive news on the injury front regarding James O’Donoghue, but Fitzmaurice isn’t certain whether the Legion man will feature against Tyrone Sunday week.
‘’James is making good progress, hasn’t done any contact yet, we’ll have to wait and see how he gets on in the next week or so and other than that then, everyone else is good really. There’s a few bangs and bruises but we’d be expecting everyone to be available.’’

When asked about the state of Captain Kieran Donaghy’s fitness, the answer was short and sweet. ‘’Kieran’s fine.’’
