Galway captain Fergal Moore was kept overnight at Clonmel Hospital after suffering concussion in a collision with Kilkenny’s Walter Walsh in Sunday’s National Hurling League semi-final at Semple Stadium.

Moore left the pitch on a spinal board after receiving 10 minutes of attention from medical staff, but Galway hurling PRO Jarlath Cloonan told GAA.ie that the player only suffered slight concussion.

"He was kept overnight in Clonmel Hospital, and they're going to have a look at the scans today," Cloonan said.

"They said that he was concussed and they checked him out this morning to see that everything was okay. I think that he'll be okay. Being kept overnight was more of a precaution than anything else. Slight concussion is what the diagnosis is."
