CLARE have opened their Munster Minor hurling campaign with a 0-17 to 0-15 victory over Waterford in Walsh Park this afternoon. Clare trailed three points to one after five minutes as Waterford started quickly but Clare soon found their groove and points from their full-forward line of Conner Hegarty, Diarmaid Cahill and Keith Smyth soon gave them the lead. Indeed this inside line combo bagged 12 of the Banner’s 17 points with Smyth notching five, including three frees.

Waterford’s free takers Aaron Ryan and Reuben Halloran did keep them in the game and while Clare were the better side in the opening half, they led by just one at half-time with the score 0-10 to 0-09.

AT 10.30pm tonight, Storm Hannah is still hitting Clare hard. Shannon Airport has seen flights cancelled, while the Ryanair flight from East Midlands in the UK, which was due to land at 8.45pm, had to divert to Dublin, such were the weather conditions. The fire service in the Shannon area is working to remove a number of fallen trees and debris on roads, while units in Scariff, Killaloe and Kilrush have also been deployed to keep roads clear. Although a tree has fallen on the N67 near Crags Bridge, two miles from Lahinch, personnel are not in a position to remove it at the current time.
