Clare need a win and goals to progress

Tipperary 2-18 Clare 0-11 Following a comprehensive defeat at the Ragg in Tipperary in their third round All-Ireland senior camogie championship game on Saturday, Clare now find themselves in the position that they must beat Derry on this Saturday and, in the process, score four goals if they are to get into the quarter finals. A win over Derry will leave Clare level on points with Dublin. When Clare and Dublin met two weeks ago they drew, so if they are level on points, according to competition rules, they will be separated by the number of goals scored during the league section of the competition. To date Dublin have scored four goals while Clare have managed just one, hence the need to score  four goals and, of course, beat Derry, on Saturday next in a game that will be played at a Clare venue. Clare can have no arguments about the result of their clash with Tipperary who were much …

Kelly’s display was one of a number of outstanding performances from the Clare side for whom David McInerney, John Conlon, Conor McGrath, Shane O’Donnell, Colm Galvin in the final quarter and substitute David Reidy also had key roles in this impressive win, a …
