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 …

As expected, the Clare team to face Limerick in Thursday evening’s Munster under 21 hurling final is unchanged from that which defeated a fancied Waterford side in the semi-final two weeks ago.

Clare unchanged for trip to Cork

By Seamus Hayes The Clare senior hurling management team has named the same fifteen as started last week against Galway for this Saturday evening’s round 2 Allianz league date with Cork at Pairc Ui Rinn. There is one personnel change, however, with Colm Galvin moved to midfield in a switch with Colin Ryan. Despite his impressive showing when introduced early in the second half in Galway, Cratloe’s Conor McGrath is again named amongst the substitutes David McInerney and Tony Kelly will again be absent due to hamstring injuries which also caused them to miss out on U.L.’s midweek Fitzgibbon cup quarter final win over UCD. Davy Fitzgerald and his selectors continue with the experiment of playing 2013 All-Ireland winning captain Pat Donnellan at wing forward and All star Brendan Bugler at midfield. Both were key members of the defence when Clare beat Cork in that thrilling All-Ireland final which went to a replay. Both Clare and Cork lost their opening ties …

Footballers unchanged for trip to Drogheda

By Seamus Hayes Clare senior football manager Colm Collins has named an unchanged team from that which defeated Wexford last week for Sunday’s clash with Louth at Drogheda in round two of the Allianz football league. Stephen Collins, a late replacement for Kevin Hartnett last week retains his place in the full back line. Hartnett from Meelick, who was due to play at full back, suffered an ankle injury in the warm up in Miltown. Collins came into the side at corner back with Dean Ryan switching to the full back position. Otherwise the team is unchanged and the expectation is that Podge Collins will be available this week. He missed last week’s game due to a hamstring strain suffered in a recent challenge game against Kerry. However, his Cratloe clubmate Cathal McInerney, will be out for a number of weeks due to a hamstring injury. Hopes that he could return to action this week were dashed following further treatment …
