McGarry in for final?

James McGarry
Long-serving Kilkenny ’keeper James McGarry could be set for an All-Ireland SHC final appearance next month if concerns over incumbent PJ Ryan’s health are confirmed.

Initial scans have revealed that Ryan fractured his arm during last Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final win over Wexford.

If further scans support the initial diagnosis then Ryan will be ruled out of the final against Waterford or Limerick.

Ryan’s absence would thus pave the way for McGarry’s return (after his wife’s tragic death) or Richie O’Neill to step in.
