Moloney back on Clare sideline following successful appeal

JOINT Clare senior hurling manager, Donal Moloney, will be free to patrol the sideline today in Cork following his successful appeal against a sideline ban. Moloney had to sit in the stand during Clare’s Munster final defeat to Cork in Thurles two weeks ago. Meanwhile, an unchanged team has been named by the Clare senior hurling management for today’s All-Ireland quarter-final date with Wexford at Pairc Uí Chaoimh. However, there is a strong school of though which suggests that there will be at least one change in personnel before the game gets underway at 3pm. Team captain Pat O’Connor sat out the internal weekend practice game and it remains to be seen if he will be ready to take his place in defence while rumours persist that changes will be made in the half back and midfield areas Former captain Cian Dillon has earned a recall to the match day squad of twenty six where he replaces Jason McCarthy who …

Hurling quarter final line up is complete

The way is clear for the quarter finals of the Clare senior hurling championship and the pairings will be decided on Monday evening at GAA headquarters in Clareabbey. Ahead of this weekend’s round 3 games four clubs, Sixmilebridge, Newmarket, Clonlara and Eire Og had booked their places in the last eight. When the draw is made on Monday they will be in one pot with the other pot holding the names Ballyea, Cratloe, Tulla and Clooney-Quin. Despite lining out without the injured Sean Collins and Cathal McInerney, Cratloe proved too strong for St. Josephs and ran out with a sixteen point winning margin. The first half was well contested but Cratloe’s experience saw them pull away in the last quarter on a day when teenager Billy Connors was their top scorer, finishing with 0-10 to his credit. Clare minor Diarmuid Ryan landed 0-4 as did Clare senior player Conor McGrath. Meanwhile defending champions Ballyea had to battle all the way …

Football quarter final line up complete

By Seamus Hayes The line up for the quarter finals of the Clare senior football championship was completed this weekend and the last eight games are scheduled for the weekend of September 5, 6 and 7. Eire Og went into their game on Sunday with Lissycasey as favourites to progress and while the justified that favouritism, few would have predicted the size of their winning margin. The townies recorded a runaway 3-16 to 0-6 win and were well on their way to a quarter final date with Miltown before the mid point of the game had been reached. First half goals form Eoin Glynn and Stephen Hickey helped the winners to a 2-12 to 0-1 lead. While the second half was closer, Eire Og continued to dictate matters and Dean Ryan struck for their third goal with ten minutes remaining. On Saturday evening, Cooraclare had progressed to the last eight with an easy 2-13 to 1-3 win over Ennistymon. On …

Three quarter final places filled

By Seamus Hayes Clondegad, Miltown and Doonbeg booked their places in the quarter finals of the Clare senior football championship with confortable victories over Lissycasey, St. Senans and St. Josephs on Saturday evening. Billed as the tie of the round, the meeting of fellow parishioners Clondegad and Lissycasey at Cusack Park failed to live up to expectations. A strong performance by Shane Brennan inspired Clondegad to a marited five point win. Goals in the space of four minutes shortly before half time provded decisive. Tean captain Brian Carigg scored the first from the penalty spot while Podge McMahon quickly followed with the second as the Ballynacally based outfit opened a 2-5 to 0-6 half time lead. Lissycasey had the opening three points of the second half which suggested a rally but the winners regained control and were still five points ahead when the final whistle sounded, 2-10 to 0-11. Fresh from their giant killing act of the opening round when …
