Clare’s Aron Shanagher Will Miss 2018 Season With Cruciate Injury

Clare hurler Aron Shanagher has been ruled out for the foreseeable future with a cruciate ligament injury.

According to the Irish Times, the Wolfe Tone’s clubman suffered the debilitating injury in the build-up to the Fenway Classic, which took place in Boston recently between Clare, Tipperary, Dublin and Galway. 

At just 20 years old, Shanagher has his whole inter-county career ahead of him so this setback shouldn’t dent his progression massively, however, with Clare aiming to return to the heady days of 2013 sooner rather than later this is not the news the Banner faithful would have wanted to hear. 

The corner-forward has one National Hurling League title to his name while he picked up a Munster Intermediate Club Championship winner’s medal in 2015 with the Shannon side.
