Returning to the senior ranks of Clare football is a timely boost for St Josephs Doora/Barefield given the age profile of their panel, manager Kevin Frehill affirmed.
In bridging a seven year gap to their last success in the competition, St. Josephs Doora-Barefield caused a big upset when they defeated Corofin in the intermediate football championship final at Cusack Park this Sunday afternoon.
Two years ago, following a motion to county convention, Clare GAA decided to reduce the number of senior football teams from sixteen to twelve and St Josephs Doora/Barefield were one of the teams to make the drop as a result.
t Joseph’s Doora/Barefield deservedly returned to the last four of the Intermediate Championship but it was far from a comfortable journey after being pushed all the way by a never-say-die Bodyke in Dr. Daly Park in Tulla on Saturday evening.
