A Cusack Park double header for Clare

Clare will have home advantage in their first outings in the All-Ireland  hurling and football qualifiers and the games are expected to form a double header at Cusack Park in Ennis on Saturday week, July 4.

The hurlers will take on Offaly, while the footballers will also face Leinster opposition, having been drawn against Longford.

Following their disappointing loss to Limerick in the Munster championship quarter final some weeks ago, the Clare hurlers will be fancied to return to winning ways against an Offaly side that suffered a shock loss to Laois in the Leinster championship.

The footballers also disappointed in their Munster semi-final date with Cork last week. They will be hoping to have at least some of the players who missed that game due to injury back in the side for the visit of Longford, who defeated Carlow in a first round qualifier tie on Saturday last.

Confirmation of the times of these fixtures will be available following a meeting of the competitions control committee in Croke Park on Monday afternoon.
