Clonlara seal quarter final spot

There were no major shocks as round 2 of the Clare senior hurling championship was completed this Sunday afternoon. Weather conditions were anything but pleasant as the remaining three games in the round were played at Sixmilebridge, Broadford and Tulla. Clonlara secured their passage to the quarter finals with a hard earned 2-13 to 1-11 win over Clooney-Quin at O’Garney Park. They got off to a superb start with a goal from Darach Honan in the second minute and the inter county man quickly followed with a point. By the end of the first quarter Clooney-Quin were in front helped by a Mike Daffy goal. A superb goal from Nicky O’Connell put the winners back in front and when the half time whistle sounded they were 2-2 to 1-4 ahead.

Shocks galore in football title race

The third round of the Clare senior football championship produced its fair share of surprise results not least the elimination of Kilmurry-Ibrickane who lost out to Ennistymon at Cusack Park on Sunday. The winners showed from an early stage that it would take a big effort to stop them from marching on. They led by three points at half time and held this advantage throughout the third quarter. Kilmurry made a number of changes and this helped them get back into contention and they drew level inside the final ten minutes before a superb Ennistymon move ended with corner back Enda Ralph shooting to the net for the game’s only goal which helped them to a 1-9 to 0-9 victory. On Saturday in Cooraclare, O’Currys proved too strong for a fancied Lissycasey side and scored a merited one point win, 0-7 to 0-6. The winners dominated the opening half and were full value for their 0-6 to 0-1 half time …
