Details have been released on the amalgamated Naomh Eoin/O’Currys/St Senans Kilkee side that will be compete in the upcoming Clare SFC.

Clare GAA secretary, Pat Fitzgerald first revealed at the February meeting of the County Board that Kilkee were interested in joining forces with their peninsula neighbours at senior level for 2020. The Saints were relegated to the junior ranks last year following a relegation final defeat to Naomh Eoin.

Detail was released on Sunday afternoon as to the name and crest of the amalgamation. Club officials have confirmed they will be entered into the Clare SFC as Western Gaels following agreement in recent weeks. Regardless of results, they cannot be relegated following approval by clubs in January.

O’Currys and Naomh Eoin will continue to compete in the Clare IFC with St Senans now acclimatising to life in the Junior A ranks. Officers believe that competing in senor is “a very positive move for the three clubs and in particular for the younger players”.

Kilkee Forge’ Conor Murray designed the crest while Kilrush based Central Sports are to supply their kit. Explaining the meaning behind the crest, Murray noted it brought intrinsic elements from each of the three.

He said, “The lighthouse symbolises Naomh Eoin, and is an adaptation of their existing crest. The lighthouse radiates light and signifies hope. The star is a nod to the Kilkee crest and has been used as a symbol by St. Senan’s for decades. The star also signifies guidance. The quill gives a visual reference to the great scholar Eugene O’Curry, whom O’Curry’s are named after. It reminds us of the strength of knowledge and communication. The currach is depicted with three men rowing together. This symbolises the three teams and communities coming together and combining our strengths to battle as one”.

Naomh Eoin/O’Currys competed in the 2019 Clare SFC and were managed by Joe Garry alongside Johnny Daly and Dermot Galvin, all of whom are said not be involved.
