Lissycasey and Kilmurry-Ibrickane will meet in the final of the 2016 Clare under 21 A football championship. A 1-12 to 1-7 win over Ennistymon at Corofin on this Saturday afternoon saw Kilmurry move a step closer to adding the under 21 A title to the senior crown they won last month. They had led by the minimum margin at half time when the score was 0-7 to 1-3.
Lissycasey qualified for the final last evening, Friday) when they scored a 2-13 to 1-7 win over the Shannon Gaels/Kilmihil combination in a game played under lights at Cooraclare. Lissycasey laid the foundation for that win in the first half at the end of which they were ten points clear, 2-7 to 0-3, the goals coming from Padraig McNamara and Aaron Griffin.
The final is a repeat of the minor A final of three years ago, a game won by Lissycasey by the minimum margin.
Two competitions remain to be completed and Kilmurry-Ibrickane are in both finals. In addition to the under 21 A decider, they are also in the Cusack cup(senior league) final where they will play either Clondegad or Doonbeg.
