Clare unchanged for trip to Cork

By Seamus Hayes The Clare senior hurling management team has named the same fifteen as started last week against Galway for this Saturday evening’s round 2 Allianz league date with Cork at Pairc Ui Rinn. There is one personnel change, however, with Colm Galvin moved to midfield in a switch with Colin Ryan. Despite his impressive showing when introduced early in the second half in Galway, Cratloe’s Conor McGrath is again named amongst the substitutes David McInerney and Tony Kelly will again be absent due to hamstring injuries which also caused them to miss out on U.L.’s midweek Fitzgibbon cup quarter final win over UCD.

Footballers unchanged for trip to Drogheda

By Seamus Hayes Clare senior football manager Colm Collins has named an unchanged team from that which defeated Wexford last week for Sunday’s clash with Louth at Drogheda in round two of the Allianz football league.

Hartnett from Meelick, who was due to play at full back, suffered an ankle injury in the warm up in Miltown.

He missed last week’s game due to a hamstring strain suffered in a recent challenge game against Kerry. However, his Cratloe clubmate Cathal McInerney, will be out for a number of weeks due to a hamstring injury. Hopes that he could return to action this week were dashed following further treatment …
