EXPERIENCED defender Ronan Fallon has quit the Dublinsenior hurling panel.
The St Vincent’s clubman had grown increasingly frustrated by his failure to break into Anthony Daly‘s championship line-up and informed the manager of his decision on Monday.
It has been confirmed by Dublin insiders that Daly and Fallon spoke by telephone on Monday and that there is no animosity between the pair.
Fallon had featured in challenge matches prior to the Laois game but had to settle for a place on the bench when Daly named his team for the Nowlan Park tie.
Fallon suffered a crushing blow in April 2009 when he sustained a broken metatarsal against Kilkenny in the NHL. The injury ruled him out of Dublin’s entire Leinster Championship campaign and while he returned to fitness for the All-Ireland quarter-final against Limerick, he was an unused substitute.
