Champions of past two years clash

The Clare senior football champions of the past two years, Miltown St. Josephs who are the current title holders and Cratloe, will meet in the 2016 semi-final.

They were the first two teams drawn when the semi-final draw took place at Clare GAA headquarters on Monday evening. This means that the other semi-final willsee last year’s finalists, Cooraclare, take on either Kilmurry-Ibrickane or Lissycasey whose quarter final tie scheduled for Saturday last was cancelled due to the search for missing Lissycasey man David McMahon.

The semi-finals are set to be played on Saturday and Sunday week.

Meanwhile, the pairings for the quarter finals of the junior A football championship were also decided and they are Kilmurry-Ibrickane v Killimer, Naomh Eoin v Ballyvaughan, Michael Cusacks v Cooraclare and Clooney-Quin v Meelick. These games will also be played on Saturday and Sunday week
