Inagh-Kilnamona retain Clare senior camogie crown

Inagh-Kilnamona 2-8 Newmarket 1-10 In the lead up to this afternoon’s Clare senior camogie final views were divided as to who would capture the McMahon cup but all were in agreement that there would be little between the sides when the final whistle sounded. And so it proved as Inagh-Kilnamona held on to the title they won for the first time last year when they scored a one point win over their predecessors as Clare senior champions. Helped by a fortunate goal two minutes before the half time whistle, the title holders took a two point lead to the break with the score at 1-4 to 0-5. Having played with the aid of the breeze in the first half, a two point advantage didn’t look enough. Eleven minutes into the second half Newmarket had drawn level but within a minute of Aine O’Brien firing over the equalising point, the title holders struck for their second goal, Sinead O’Loughlin finding the …

Losing his place drove Kelly

CLARE goalkeeper Pa Kelly experienced a mixed 2014. Having played such a key role in Clare’s 2013 All-Ireland success, the Inagh-Kilnamona man, who works as an accountant with Curtin O’Friel & Co in Ennis, lost his place. He insists, though, that he had no issue with the manner of his dropping, although he did subsequently regain his place. “Davy was fair. He made the call. He was pretty honest. Maybe my standards dropped and, in fairness to him, he gave me my chance to get back in. I don’t know whether I took it or not but I have proven since that I probably have. It just goes to show that you can’t let your guard down. If you win an All-Ireland you can’t get complacent. They are the standards he is demanding. He demands that you do the extra stuff and look after yourself. Maybe he thought that I wasn’t doing it but I thought he dealt with it …

Clarecastle 0-16 Inagh-Kilnamona 0-15 A haul of eleven points from Bobby Duggan helped Clarecastle to their second successive victory in division 1 A of the Clare Champion cup when they defeated hitherto unbeaten Inagh-Kilnamona at Inagh. The magpies played with the aid of the wind in the first half and they held a four point advantage when the half time whistle sounded with the score at 0-10 to 0-6. Seven minutes into the second half, the home side had closed the gap to the minimum but that was as close as it got as Clarecastle used their greater experience to hold the advantage. Inagh-Kilnamona weren’t helped by the loss of minor Jason McCarthy to injury but it was their concession of frees which proved costly as Duggan ensured that his side stayed in front. In addition to Duggan, the winners had good performances from Gearoid Ryan, Conor Galvin, Jonathan Clancy and Patrick Kelly while Kevin Hehir, Ronan O’Looney, Gerry Coote …
