Football draw throws up interesting pairings

By Seamus Hayes

The draw for round 2 of the Clare senior football championship, made at county GAA headquarters earlier this Monday evening, has thrown up some interesting pairings.

Champions Cratloe will face Cooraclare, for the second year in a row, while, arguably, the tie of the round is the meeting of fellow parishioners, Lissycasey and Clondegad.

First round giant killers St. Senans Kilkee will take on Miltown St. Josephs while last year’s beaten finalists will see Ciaran O’Neill manage the magpies against his own club St. Josephs Doora-Barefield

Kilmurry-Ibrickane, shocked in the opening round by St.Senans, will face Shannon Gaels while another of the fancied teams for the title who lost their first round, Eire oOg, will take on Liscannor. North Clare neighbours St. Breckans and Ennistymon will face each other while the remaining tie will see O’Currys take on Kilrush.

The losers of these four games will be out of the title race and into a relegation battle
