FRESH FROM the high of winning a first Clare IFC title since 2003, Kildysart will be aiming to bounce forward in the Munster club intermediate football championship.

Cusack Park is pencilled in to host Saturday’s quarter-final against Cork champions, Kanturk. However, a warning was issued at this week’s County Board meeting that if weather conditions worsened, an alternative venue may have to be found so that the county grounds is playable for Sunday’s clash between Éire Óg and The Nire.

Noel O’Grady’s charges won’t get bogged down on the details surrounding where the game goes ahead and will instead brace themselves for a stern test against the Leesiders who count ex Cork footballer Aidan Walsh among their leading lights.

Having joined forces with Shannon Estuary neighbours Shannon Gaels, Coolmeen and Kilmihil for the U21 amalgamation of Cill Cúil Gaels, the Kildysart players once again demonstrated their top form with county man Emmet McMahon giving an outstanding display as they recorded an opening round win against Cooraclare.
