It’s Clare v Cork …again


Clare will play Cork in round 2 of the hurling qualifier on this Saturday. It’s expected that the game, a repeat of the Al-Ireland final of 2013, will form part of a double header with the Limerick v Dublin tie. Venue and times will be announced after a meeting of the CCC in Croke park this Monday afternoon.

Cork, beaten by Waterford in the Provincial semi-final, bounced back into contention with a big win over Wexford at Wexford park on Saturday.

Clare and Cork last met at the end of February in the league when Cork emerged with a comfortable 1-24 to 0-17 victory at Pairc Ui Rinn.

In 2013 the teams produced two thrilling contests in the All-Ireland final with Clare emerging as winners in a replay
