Strong second-half sees Clare ladies start league campaign with a win

National Ladies Football League Division 2B Round 1 Clare 0-12 Wexford 1-8 CLARE got their League campaign off to a winning start in Cusack Park, rallying against a formidable Wexford side to come from behind in the second half to snatch the win by a single point, reports Muireann Duffy. Clare had a commanding start to the opening half, taking the challenge to Wexford who took longer to find their feet. A direct attacking style suited the homeside, who made easy work of cutting straight through Wexford’s defence, but the roles would be reversed in the second half. Fidelma Marrinan caused an early headache for Paul Carty’s side, proving a strong attacking threat and pointing two frees in the opening 10 minutes, but unforced Clare errors at the other end of the pitch quickly gave Wexford their way into the match. Claiming four points from frees, Wexford put themselves ahead in the 13th minute despite Clare playing the better football. …

Clare ladies looking to power to next level

Exciting times for Clare Ladies Football both on and off the field were confirmed this week with news that Rengen Power, an Ennis-based renewable energy company, were coming on board as the flagship team’s main sponsor for the next three years. Based on the theory that a rising tide lifts all boats, the endorsement of a big sponsor will hopefully be reflected where it matters most according to new Clare Ladies Football Chairman Sean Lenihan who has been working tirelessly to ensure that success breeds success for the county in 2021 and beyond. “To be the best that you can be requires considerable expense and despite the high levels of volunteerism involved, the costs of running a county wide organisation are significant.  “While I am somewhat biased admittedly, I think that Clare Ladies Football is a fantastic brand and many organisations and companies are seeing the benefits of being involved with Ladies Football.  “So we are delighted to be partnering …

Willing to move Evan and earth for Clare breakthrough

With a first competitive outing as Clare Ladies’ Football Manager inexorably drawing closer, there is an understandable excitement and anticipation in Evan Talty’s voice ahead of a welcome Cusack Park National League showdown with Wexford this Sunday (2pm). A nine time County Senior Football champion with his native Kilmurry Ibrickane, Talty is more than comfortable in Clare headquarters and is also familiar with the Clare ladies football camp after answering the call from his cousin James Murrihy to get involved in the backroom team twelve months previously. Three lockdowns later and the hectic existence of an inter-county manager has suddenly hit home for Talty after an admittedly comfortable initial transition period. “I suppose I thought this inter-county management craic was very easy there as for the first couple of months [during lockdown] as I was saying ‘Jesus I don’t have to do anything.’ Joked Talty. “But I’ll tell you one thing, I’m really get a dose of reality now in …

Ladies board to appeal Browne decision

AN emergency meeting of the Clare Ladies Football County Board, held on Tuesday evening, unanimously backed the recently elected county board in their plans to appeal Munster Council’s Appeals Committee decision to uphold outgoing chairman, Davy Browne’s appeal to them. At the county convention in December, Bernie Regan comprehensively ousted Browne from the chairperson’s role. The Doonbeg man was also beaten in his efforts to be elected as county minor manager. He subsequently appealed the way in which the annual convention was technically conducted to a Munster Council Appeals Committee. They ruled in his favour last Friday but that does not mean the former chairman is automatically returned. “Munster Council are aware that until this process is finished, the existing board remains in position. From everyone’s point of view, Bernie Regan is the chairperson,” recently elected county board secretary, Paul McKenna, told The Clare Champion. This week’s emergency meeting was attended by 39 delegates. The meeting voted, 31 votes to …
