CLARE’s senior camogie side are in must-win territory this weekend if they are to avoid a relegation catfight.

Cusack Park is the venue this Saturday as they welcome Waterford to Ennis for a 4pm start. At 2pm, the county junior side will be in action in Breffni Park facing off with Cavan.

Without a win in four games, the senior side currently sit at bottom of the table in Group 1 of the Glen Dimplex Senior All-Ireland Championship. Waterford are already guaranteed a place in the quarter-finals but the Banner needing a win and for Dublin to overcome Wexford in order to stay out of a relegation playoff which will pit them against the losers of Down versus Offaly.

Managed by Conor Dolan and John Carmody, Clare reached the Munster Final only to lose to Cork in extra time. They have failed to bring this form into the All-Ireland series and the high overlap with players on the junior panel has limited the depth of their panel.

Progression to the knockout stages remains on course for the Junior outfit who are currently unbeaten in championship. They have had convincing wins over Mayo and Waterford while they drew with Tipperary.

For the second championship contest in a row, the senior side will be deprived of supporters owing to a fixture clash with their male counterparts. The county hurlers take on Kilkenny at 5:30pm on Saturday evening, an hour and a half from the throw-in of the camogie game.
