Clare’s senior camogie side have picked up their first championship win of the year following a hard fought battle with Meath.

Clare 0-12
Meath 0-11
Venue: Pairc Tailteann

Level entering additional time, Clare survived what would have been a massive setback to put two points on the board and get their first championship win under the management of Ger O’Connell.

Scariff’s Mairead Scanlon put the visitors back in front on sixty two minutes and substitute Chloe Morey pointed in their next attack, Meath who were reduced to fourteen players narrowed the gap to the minimum with a white flag from Megan Thynne. Luckily for Clare, the final whistle sounded just in time as they put a vital two points on the board.

It would take the Banner some time to settle into the game but held a 0-07 0-02 lead with twenty one minutes on the clock. However, Meath registered the final two scores of the half to reduce the gap to three points at half-time.

Though outscored in the second half 7-5, Clare held off the challenge off a valiant Meath who will be wondering what may have been had they kept their full complement of players for the hour.

A home tie with Tipperary on the weekend of July 6/7 is next up for Clare while Meath who have two defeats in as many games face Waterford.
