ALL-IRELAND winning defender, Seadna Morey has said he would consider a return to the Clare senior hurling panel in the New Year.

Morey who memorably played a vital role in assisting Darach Honan’s goal in the 2013 All-Ireland SHC final replay as Clare got their hands on the Liam McCarthy for only the fourth time took a year out from the county panel in the season just gone.

During the 2020 campaign when Brian Lohan’s side reached the All-Ireland SHC quarter-finals, the Sixmilebridge native featured for every minute of championship action.

Seadna is the holder of five Clare SHC medals, in 2019 he was joint captain of the Bridge side alongside corner back Noel Purcell.

At county level, he won Munster minor medals in 2010 and 2011, following this up at U21 level with three All-Ireland and Munster titles. Davy Fitzgerald added him to the senior panel in 2012 with All-Ireland and National League medals obtained in 2013 and 2016.

More recently, Seadna alongside his cousin Chloe, an accomplished camogie player in her own field, have opened Morey Movement, a new gym in Sixmilebridge, which they hope will become a centre of health and well-being for South-East Clare. The gym opened last month and offers three different types of sessions – the all-zone class works on every facet of fitness such as mobility, strength and cardio, the amber zone class is cardio based with heart rate monitors used while the red zone class is endurance based.

Speaking to The Clare Echo, Seadna admitted that the idea of returning to the inter-county fold is something he is open to but hasn’t dwelled on. “I haven’t given it much thought. I never said the word retirement last year, I always planned on going back towards it.

“At the moment my focus is on getting this up and running, I want to give this one hundred percent, I’m going to be extremely busy next year so I will probably put all my effort into this but I’ll give it a consideration in the New Year, maybe Brian doesn’t even want me back you never know, I will focus all my time and effort into this and we will see what happens into the future,” Seadna said of his new business venture.

Meanwhile, Chloe has confirmed she will be part of the county camogie panel who are now managed by Conor Dolan and John Carmody.

She is set to link up with the panel before the start of the National League. “I want to try give it a go even though Seadna laughs at me everytime I say it, I don’t know where I’m going to get the time. I will give this a right push from the start, I was talking to John and Conor, they said I could come back before the League and we’ll see where we are, if it works it works, I’d love to give it a lash. If I go back and I’m number thirty five then I’ll be fine with that and I’ll do my absolute best to get into the starting fifteen, if it doesn’t work I won’t be sulking”.
