Clare’s senior camogie side are in must win territory as they welcome Dublin to Fr McNamara Park this weekend.

With both sides having lost to Tipperary, an All-Ireland quarter-final place is up for grabs when they meet on Saturday afternoon.

In their opening outing, Clare were left reeling when last year’s beaten semi-finalists Tipperary rattled off ten points in succession on their way to recording a 0-20 1-08 win, Eimear Kelly getting their consolation goal in the dying moments.

It wasn’t as convincing for Tipperary on Sunday when Cait Devane contributed 1-06 as they overcame Dublin 1-13 0-11.

Experienced trio Chloe Morey, Niamh O’Dea and Susan Vaughan are all said to be pressing for inclusion in Clare’s starting team having been introduced from the bench in the opening round.

Whether Ger O’Connell and his management team opt for further changes remains to be seen. Clare Hehir is expected to continue in defence alongside Ciara Doyle and Roisin McMahon but changes to the make-up of the Banner’s attack is expected.
