The Cork senior football management are anxiously awaiting the outcome of a scan on Aidan Walsh following an injury at the weekend, which could rule him out of the Munster quarter-final away to Waterford on May 27.

The midfielder suffered a dislocated shoulder in the seventh minute of Kanturk’s five-point IFC win over Mitchelstown on Saturday evening, and Cork selector Eoin O’Neill says that the severity of that will be assessed.

“Aidan is going for a scan later in the week,” he said.

“He did some damage to it, so we’ll have to see what the verdict is, hopefully it won’t be too serious. Apart from Brian Hurley, we’d hope to have everybody else available for the championship, once everybody comes through their club games this weekend.” 

Hurley is recovering from surgery on his second major hamstring tear in two seasons and won't return until next year.

It remains to be seen when Eoin Cadogan will link up with the footballers again. He hasn't played yet this term due to an Achilles issue which hindered him last year, and was unavailable to his club Douglas as well in recent wins over Newcestown and Clyda in the SFC.
