A LEINSTER SCHOOLS hurling game in Thomastown in Kilkenny was abandoned today early in the second half after an injury to a player from Wexford school, Good Counsel (New Ross).

Jim Ryan, a player from Kilkenny club Rower-Inistioge, suffered a head injury in the Leinster SAHC semi-final between Good Counsel and Kilkenny CBS, but thankfully it has emerged that he has not suffered a serious injury.

The incident occurred early in the second half and the player was not moved as precaution with an ambulance called to treat him. The match was subsequently abandoned by the referee after a lengthy delay.
