Stephen Cluxton Injury

Dublin's influential 'keeper and captain, Stephen Cluxton was on the end of a very late and very heavy tackle which saw Longford's James McGivney taking an early shower on Sunday.

Dublin are now into yet another Leinster Final but it'll be the first time that they are without their Number 1 for the first time in 14 years.

One of the most iconic goalkeepers in the game will not only miss the Final against Laois but it seems that he will be out of action for up to a month, according to The Irish Mirror.

The publication is saying that Cluxton will be on the sideline for four weeks because he suffered damage to his ribs following the mid-air challenge.

At that rate, he would just be back in time for the brand new Super 8, round-robin style matches which will take place instead of the straight-out Quarter Finals.

This news comes in the same week that it was announced that Diarmuid Connolly would be playing GAA this summer but not in Donegal colours.

Connolly will be instead opting for yellow and green colours and will not features for the Boys in Blue in the championship.
