Huge Blow For Tipperary As Seamus Callanan Ruled Out For Lengthy Period

Tipperary have been rocked by the news that Seamus Callanan looks set to miss most of the National League campaign through injury.

The Irish Independent have reported on Sunday morning that the three-time All Star is suffering from a disc problem, and while manager Michael Ryan is looking to have the 29-year-old back for the end of the campaign in March, it could be the before Callanan returns to action.

While Tipp are the most successful side in the league’s history – with 19 titles in total – they have not tasted victory in the competition in a decade, finishing in the runners-up slot to Galway last year.

If Callanan does end up missing the entire league campaign, the loss of the two-time All-Ireland winner be a massive blow for Ryan’s hopes of ending that barren run. It could also mean that the Drum-Inch man would be playing catch-up in the Munster Championship when that begins in May.

Tipperary begin their Division 1A campaign with a trip to Clare at the end of this month.
