Waterford are set to be without Tom Devine for their 2019 campaign.
New Deise boss Paraic Fanning expects to be without the services of the 23-year-old Modeligo forward due to work commitments, having returned to inter-county action last year after missing the 2017 All-Ireland final loss to Galway.
Fanning has recently been boosted by the return of Shane Bennett to the squad, while veteran Michael ‘Brick’ Walsh has committed for 2019.
“We have a few lads back. Tom Devine is probably not available next year given his pursuit of a medical career, but we’d be hopeful down the line he might become available again,” Fanning told the Irish Daily Star.
