Caoimhe Harvey has been named as the new captain of the Clare intermediate ladies football side.

West Clare Gaels clubwoman Harvey was sprung from the bench the last time Clare featured in the All-Ireland intermediate final. She replaced her sister Shauna on Neil Moynihan’s side and has become an integral part of the team in the subsequent years.

Last year, Caoimhe lined out at midfield as James Murrihy’s charges reached the last four, a very strong Meath side ended their involvement in the All-Ireland series.

Only two Clare teams have ever won the All-Ireland Minor B ladies football crown. Caoimhe was top-scorer with 2-01 to her name from midfield in an exceptional performance. The victorious team of 2017 were managed by her late father Kieran, a man held in the highest of esteem by those involved in the sport.

Evan Talty has taken over from his Kilmurry Ibrickane clubmate Murrihy as manager of the side. All-Ireland glory has already been listed as the objective by the new manager.

One of his first moves has been to appoint Harvey as captain. She succeeds Ellie O’Gorman of Kilmihil, the full back had been captain for two years and followed on from the Banner’s Laurie Ryan.
