Cratloe versus Ennistymon is the pick of the round following Monday evening’s draw for the Clare SFC quarter-finals. 

Colm Collins’ side face a fancied Ennistymon outfit who have already recorded victories over Cooraclare and Doonbeg in this year’s championship. Kilmurry Ibrickane will meet Kilmihil with reigning champions St Josephs Miltown needing to get past Lissycasey to hold onto their crown. The final meeting sees Éire Óg against Doonbeg.

Roll of honour leaders Kilrush Shamrocks have a difficult ask in retaining their senior status, they have been paired with Clondegad in the relegation semi-finals. The other tie has pitted Cooraclare against Corofin.

In the intermediate quarter-finals, there’s the clash of recently relegated from the senior ranks St Josephs Doora/Barefield vs Wolfe Tones. Last year’s beaten finalists Kildysart face Kilfenora with the Donie Garrihy managed St Breckans drawn against O’Currys. The final tie is the meeting of Shannon Gaels and Coolmeen which both sides will be happy with.

2010 Clare SFC finalists Liscannor face 2005 Clare SFC winners St Senan’s Kilkee in one relegation semi-final with Éire Óg paired against Naomh Eoin in the other clash.
