Heartbreak for Clare in Armagh

Armagh 2-16 Clare 1-15 When David Tubridy goaled for Clare with just under two minutes of normal time remaining, Clare were four points clear in this round 3 football qualifier tie and they looked set to be in Monday morning’s draw for round 4.

St. Declan’s Kilmacthomas 2-7 Ennistymon CBS 1-8 There was heartbreak for Ennistymon CBS in the Munster colleges Corn Shean Ui Mhurchu senior C football final at Mick Neville Park in Rathkeale on this Saturday afternoon. Ahead by six points at half time, things looked food for the North Clare outfit but they went twenty minutes of the second half without a s core and this proved very costly. Paul allen goaled for the Waterford side four minutes into the second half and this goal rocked the Clare side and clearly gave the winners great confidence. St.Declan’s had drawn level by the mid point of the half and then hit the front when full forward John Power goaled. Ennistymon fought back with three unanswered points in as many minutes to cut the winners lead to the minimum but despite their best efforts they were unable to get a levelling point and with the game in ‘injury time’ St.Declans landed the insurance …
