Seadna Morey has confirmed he will not be part of the Clare senior hurling panel this year.

Corner-back on the Clare minor hurling sides managed by Donal Moloney and Gerry O’Connor that claimed provincial titles in 2010 and 2011, Seadna Morey was rewarded for his exploits with a call-up to the county senior panel in the winter of 2011 by then manager Davy Fitzgerald.

Morey made his senior inter-county debut in 2012 and was sprung from the bench in the 2013 All-Ireland SHC replayed final where he provided a valuable assist for Darach Honan’s goal after winning a turn over in defence and powering past his Cork opponents before offloading possession.

In 2016, he claimed his first and only National Hurling League medal to add to his collection of three Munster and All-Ireland U21 honours. He featured in every minute of the 2020 championship for Brian Lohan’s charges.

Alongside Noel Purcell, he was joint captain of the 2019 Sixmilebridge side that were crowned Clare SHC champions, the UL graduate has a total of five Clare SHC medals.

He told The Clare Echo this week that ongoing injury concerns along with work commitments have led to the decision to withdraw from the county squad. “I hope that this decision will help me to extend my playing career” said Seadna who will continue to be available to his club side.

Seamus Hayes is one of the most well-respected local sports journalists in the country. For close to fifty years, the Lissycasey native was Sports Editor of The Clare Champion. Subsequent to his departure from Barrack St, he began writing for publications including The Clare Echo, The Clare People and The Irish Daily Star. He has won multiple awards during his distinguished career including accolades for GAA, Community Games and Camogie coverage.
