Waterford Senior Hurler Kieran Bennett has announced that he is leaving the panel.
The Ballysaggart defender told Derek McGrath that he plans to travel for the summer having finished his 4th year of college in LIT.
Kieran Bennett made his Championship debut in last year’s All Ireland semi final with Clare, and started two games of this year’s ill-fated league campaign.
His brother Shane also departed the Deise panel at the start of the year.
Waterford begin their Munster round robin campaign away to Clare on May 27th.
In a statement issued this afternoon Kieran thanked the players, the backroom team and particularly Derek, Dan and Eoin for their understanding and professionalism.
