CLARE’s representatives in the Munster intermediate and junior hurling club championships take to the field this weekend.

Fresh from securing their return to the senior ranks, St Joseph’s Doora/Barefield welcome Kerry champions Causeway to Cusack Park this Saturday with the quarter-final taking place at 1:30pm. A win for Michael Guilfoyle’s side would see them face Limerick champions Monaleen in the last four.

It has been a positive fortnight for The Parish with their intermediates defeating Tulla following extra time while their U21A hurlers began their championship with a merited win over Sixmilebridge on Saturday evening. Top performers for the Christy O’Connor coached outfit included Adam Mungovan, Senan Crosbie, Dara Nagle, Matthew Power and Bruce Piggot all of whom are part of the intermediate set-up.

Also on Saturday, Banner GAA make the trip to Killarney where they face Kilgarvan in the Munster junior quarter-final.

Eliminated from the Clare Junior A campaign at the quarter-final stage, the Ennis club have been training over the past month for the provincial clash and have got some challenge matches under their belt as part of this preparation. They will be able to call on Clare hurler Shane Meehan as they bid to finish the year on a high.
