DUBLIN hurling manager Anthony Daly’s already threadbare squad has shipped another blow after David Treacy was ruled out of Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final clash with Tipperary.
The Cuala man tore a hamstring in training, which is also expected to keep him out of the final should the Dubs upset the form book and overturn the reigning champions.
Treacy damaged his hamstring in the Leinster semi-final win over Galway on June 18 but had battled back to fitness.
This latest setback brings to five the number of front-line players that Daly will have to plan without.
Tomas Brady, Conal Keaney and Stephen Hiney have all suffered cruciate ligament injuries, while Oisin Gough has a broken hand.
