Clare football boss Colm Collins has criticised the decision not to grant all inter-county panellists entry to games.
As the Allianz National Football League recommended, Clare returned to winning ways albeit by making hard work of Fermanagh.
As far as the Clare players and officials are concerned Sunday’s national league division 2 fixture with Fermanagh, scheduled for Cusack Park at 1pm is going ahead
Two members of Clare’s All-Ireland winning team of 2013 have departed Brian Lohan’s senior hurling panel while three of the most promising young hurlers in the county have joined the squad.
Kilmurry Ibrickane have collected their sixteenth Clare senior football championship and first since 2017.
Conal O’Hanlon has been one of Cratloe’s star performers in this season’s senior championship campaign.
A Podge Collins inspired Cratloe advanced to their first Clare SFC final since 2016 narrowly defeating an impressive St Breckans side.
It was effectively a case of all’s well that ends well for Cratloe after an injury-time brace from Diarmuid Ryan cemented a place in Sunday’s quarter-final against holders St Joseph’s Miltown.
Lissycasey have booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the Clare SFC causing an upset by defeating Cratloe.
Having reached the pinnacle of a historic County Senior Hurling and Football Championship double in 2014, a feat not realised in 100 years, Cratloe were always going to be scrutinised by that standard ever since.
