McInerney sparkles in Cratloe’s big win

Dual player Cathal McInerney contributed 2-9 as Cratloe easily accounted for Eire Og in a senior football championship round 2 game at Shannon this afternoon. A winning margin of fifteen points didn’t appear likely in the opening quarter at the end of which the teams were level at 0-4 each having exchanged scores four times.

Ten minutes from the end a foul on Podge Collins resulted in a penalty which McInerney converted and five minutes later he finished off a superb move for his second goal as Cratloe secured a quarter final spot on a final scoreline of 2-17 to 0-8.

Eire Og’s Shane O’Donnell has picked up a foot injury which will keep him out for up to a month. Already without Tony Kelly, Seadna Morey, Jack Browne, Shane Golden and Pat Donnellan due to injury, the loss of McInerney and O’Donnell further weakens the Clare side. On the credit side, Newmarket’s Colin Ryan is expected to be available having missed the Limerick game as he was on honeymoon. Meanwhile, panellist Jack Browne from the Ballyea club has been named at …

Both are nominated by the north Clare branch, who will …
