SPORTING SUPPORTERS IN CLARE have been left disappointed with a fixtures clash this weekend.

Attempts by the Clare Camogie Board to get the county’s clashes in the All-Ireland senior and junior championships delayed till Sunday fell on deaf ears with the Camogie Association insisting the games be played on Saturday.

Meelick has been set as the venue for the double-header with the juniors in action against Waterford at 2pm followed by the seniors taking on Dublin at 5pm. Brian Lohan’s hurlers will be facing off with Wexford at 3:45pm in Semple Stadium in Thurles leaving supporters to pick between which contest they will go to and also ruling out the players, management and officials involved with the camogie teams from travelling to Tipperary.

Chairman of Clare Camogie, Joe O’Donnell contacted Hilda Breslin on Saturday evening when they became aware of the clash and requested the games be moved to Sunday. However, both Dublin and Waterford did not accede to this. He does not expect spectators to travel to Meelick as a result, “we’re going to be the big losers in this”.

“It is highly unsatisfactory, it means all the players from both teams, the management teams and all County Board officers are going to miss out on going to Semple Stadium, it is actually pitting camogie against GAA which is totally wrong,” the Cratloe clubman stated.
