Emerging from the ‘group of death’ has brought a fantastic lift to the Inagh/Kilnamona senior hurling panel.
With three wins from three games, Inagh/Kilnamona are safely through to the Clare SHC quarter-finals. They’ve done it the hard way overcoming Kilmaley, O’Callaghans Mills and Clonlara with a final group clash with Whitegate to follow.
Manager Eugene Cullinan understandably was very pleased to see his side progress. “We’re delighted with the result, it was a great game, two fine teams going at it hell for leather and we got out the right side of it. They never dropped the heads which is a great sign of a team”.
“We are out of the group now which is brilliant. We still have to beat Whitegate to top the group and that’s not going to be easy. They are going to be coming for us. We have a month now and that brings its own problems. Look I am delighted with three wins on the trot,” he added while flagging that they have only scored one goal to date in the championship.
Clonlara because of their defeat to Inamona are left in must-win territory, their manager Eddie Horgan acknowledged. “A disappointing result which leaves us with two must win games now. We will re-group and prepare for those. They were strong and responded well after we had fought back to level”.
