Tight encounter likely in first Clare SFC semi-final

Eoin Brennan looks ahead to St Breckan’s semi-final clash with Éire Óg Senior Football Championship Semi-Finals St Breckan’s v Éire Óg at Cusack Park Ennis, Saturday 4.30pm WHICHEVER way the pendulum swings, a major breakthrough will be accomplished by Saturday evening for two sides looking to turn undoubted potential into Jack Daly success.

Equally, there was much to like about Kilrush’s spirit and application to certainly make life extremely uncomfortable for a St Breckan’s side that was expected to steamroll the Shams.
