The race for the various Clare ladies football championships continued last weekend but Sunday’s schedule was disrupted due to the thunder and lightening and heavy rain on Sunday evening which led to the calling off of the game between Kilmihil and Burren Gaels.

This game had started but was abandoned after forty five minutes, it will be re-scheduled for a later date.

Two games were played in the senior competition and here Banner Ladies and Kilmurry Ibrickane recorded big wins over Cooraclare and St Joseph’s Doora Barefield respectively.
