Clare’s minor footballers have bowed out of the All-Ireland series losing to Galway by seven points.
Venue: O’Connor Park, Tullamore
In the GAA and sport there is a cliché about a game of two halves. This encounter fell into this category with Clare the stronger side in the opening half and Galway the dominators for the decisive second half in this All-Ireland MFC quarter-final.
Maurice Walsh’s side showed no signs of having a knock on effect from their heavy Munster Final defeat to Kerry once the ball was thrown in. They dictated the first twenty five minutes keeping Galway scoreless while also tipping over seven points of their own.
Three late points before the break from the Tribesmen left it 0-08 0-03 at half-time in Clare’s favour.
Galway got into their groove on the restart and limited Clare to just three points in the entire second half while adding fifteen points of their own to secure their place in the semi-finals.
