Clare’s hurlers hopes of returning to Croke Park for the first time since 2018 have to wait another year following Saturday’s defeat to Waterford.
The Clare Echo’s Head of News & Sport, Páraic McMahon is joined by two-time All-Ireland winner Stephen McNamara, Munster senior camogie championship winner Deirdre Murphy and 2013 All-Ireland medallist Darach Honan. They begin the post-mortem to reflect on Clare’s exit from the All-Ireland SHC at the hands of Waterford.
They assess whether Waterford were a level above Clare or if three games in as many weekends was a factor to the result. The trio also identify ways for Clare to improve next year and lessons learned by Brian Lohan in his first year in the hotseat.
