Last two quarter final places filled

By Seamus Hayes Twenty teams set out in search of the Clare senior hurling championship back in May and the number that can win the Canon Hamilton trophy in 2014 is now down to eight. The final two quarter final places were filled at Cusack Park on Saturday evening where O’Callaghans Mills and Ballyea overcame Broadford and Inagh-Kilnamona to complete the line up. They join Cratloe, Crusheen, Newmarket, Clarecastle, Eire Og and Clonlara who had already booked their last eight places before Saturday’s round three games.
