Clare made a winning start to their division 3 ladies football league campaign when they accounted for Wexford at St. Patricks Park in Enniscorthy on Sunday.

Clare 1-7
Wexford 0-1
Venue: St Patrick’s Park, Enniscorthy

A contribution of 1-4 from All star nominee, Fidelma Marrinan from West Clare Gaels was the highlight of the Banner side’s victory.

The Clare girls were 0-4 to 0-1 in front at half time in a tie played in very difficult weather conditions. The game was originally scheduled for Taghmon but had to be moved due to the inclement weather conditions.

Clare availed of the opportunity to give game time to the majority of their panel and the same is expected to be the case on this Sunday when the Banner side will entertain Sligo, a game that will be played at Clarecastle astro turf facility at 12 noon.

These sides met in the opening round last year in Sligo when Clare recorded a comfortable win.
