Reigning Clare and Munster camogie champions, Scariff/Ogonnelloe have been handed the toughest draw possible as their attempts to retain the McMahon Cup get underway.

In an unforgettable 2019 campaign, Scariff/Ogonnelloe won their first ever Clare senior camogie championship. Their journey to get back to the summit could not be more difficult as they learned their fate for this year’s campaign on Monday night.

They have been drawn in Group B alongside Inagh/Kilnamona whose bid to win four championships in succession was ended by the East Clare side last year, reigning league champions Truagh/Clonlara and current Senior B champions Sixmilebridge.

After winning promotion from the intermediate ranks last year, St Josephs Doora/Barefield will fancy their chances in Group A. Four time champions Kilmaley, Kilkishen/Bodyke who relegated Clooney/Quin last year and 2019 beaten finalists Newmarket-on-Fergus await them.

Six teams will face off in the intermediate championship. Each side is to play each other with the top four at the end of five rounds advancing to the semi-finals. Clooney/Quin will be eyeing up a return to the top flight but must overcome Tulla, Feakle/Killanena, Whitegate, Éire Óg and Clarecastle/Ballyea to do just that.
