The dream of Harty cup success in 2024 remains very much alive for a number of Clare players after Ard Scoil Ris from Limerick knocked competition favourites out of the 2024 championship at Kilmallock this Saturday afternoon.

Ard Scoil Ris 0-18 Thurles CBS 1-14

Ten Claremen were in the Limerick school’s starting line up and they played a huge role in the victory, contributing all but three points of the team’s total.

Cratloe’s Mark O’Brien proved to be the hero firing over the winning point with the last play of the game.

Ard Scoil got off to a great start and they held a five point advantage at half time when the score was 0-12 to 0-7.

Thurles, who had knocked St Flannans College out of the title race in the quarter final, hit back strongly in the second half and extra time looked likely as full time approached.

Then O’Brien brought his tally for the afternoon to three points when he drilled a free between the uprights for what proved to be the winning score.

In the final they will take on Nenagh CBS who came from behind to defeat Charleville CBS by four points, 2-18 to 1-17.

The Clare players on the Ard Scoil Ris team this afternoon were Eoin Carey (Cratloe) at corner back, Sean McMahon (Smith O’Briens) at full back, Jamie Moylan (Cratloe) at centre back, Rian McNamara, (Cratloe) at midfield, Matthew O’Halloran (Sixmilebridge) at midfield, Diarmuid

Stritch (Clonlara) with 0-3 at wing forward, Michael Collins (Clonlara) with 0-2 at wing forward, Danny Chaplin (Sixmilebridge) with 0-6 at corner forward, Marc O’Brien (Cratloe) with 0-3 at full forward and Eoin Begley (Clonlara) at corner forward.

Cratloe’s Daire Neville was introduced for the second half in place of Begley.

Disappointment for Scariff CC

Blackwater C.C. 3-18  Scariff CC 1-17

Meanwhile, Scariff Community College’s dream of Munster college’s senior hurling Glory in 2024 ended in the senior B hurling semi-final on Fridayt when they suffered defeat from Blackwater Community school from Lismore in Waterford.

With little between the sides as the final whistle approached, Blackwater put in a strong finish to seal their passage to the final.
