Fears that champions Cratloe would be drawn against Kilmurry-Ibrickane in round 3 of the senior football championship weren’t realised when the draw was made at GAA headquarters in Clareabbey on Monday evening. A repeat of three first round games was possible when club representatives attended a meeting of the CCC where the draws took place. At the outset it was confirmed that there was no stipulation preventing repeat pairings. Title holders Cratloe, surprisingly beaten by Cooraclare on Sunday evening, were first out and they will face St. Senans Kilkee on Sunday week. Kilmurry-Ibrickane were drawn to play Ennistymon is what is already being billed as the tie of the round.

Pointless Clare facing relegation play off

By Seamus Hayes Tipperary 2-19 Clare 0-20 Despite showing improved form on their previous league outings, Clare suffered their third defeat in succession when going under to Tipperary at Cusack Park in round 3 of the Allianz hurling league on Sunday afternoon. Goals in the 43rd and 66th minutes proved crucial in a tie played before 7,363 patrons. Tipperary showed the greater sharpness on the day and this was a crucial factor on the day. The visitors started brightly and led 0-4 to 0-1 after twelve minutes. With centre back Conor Ryan in excellent form Clare hit the next four points to lead by one, 0-5 to 0-4, after twenty minutes.

By Seamus Hayes There will be much to play for in round 3 of the Clare senior hurling championship next weekend after the completion of round 2 which leaves eighteen of the twenty teams in the competition still in with a chance of making it to the play offs. Defending champions Newmarket along with Crusheen, Clonlara, Ballyea and O’Callaghans Mills are the only unbeaten sides after two outings. They are in a strong position to advance but nothing is guaranteed and they wll need to get something from the upcoming round if they are to be in the play offs. Clonlara had five points to spare (1-17 to 1-12) over Clarecastle in a lively tie at Sixmilebride where Cathal ‘Tots’ O’Connell was their goalscorer. Crusheen, with Cian Dillon in sparkling form at centre back, were impressive 0-17 to 0-10 winners over a disappointing Inagh-Kilnamona at Cusack Park. At the same venue, Kilmaley got their campaign back on track with a …
