Evan Talty has been appointed as the new manager of the Clare intermediate ladies football team.
West Clare Gaels
An ability to lift communities is a trait of the GAA’s which has been forgotten by sections of the Irish public criticising the continuation of inter-county games, Clare ladies footballer Caoimhe Harvey has said.
If clinching an 11th senior ladies football crown in just 13 seasons wasn’t sweet enough, the fact that Banner Ladies Captain Grainne Nolan was lifting the coveted cup for the first time certainly piped the celebratory icing on the cake in Doonbeg on Sunday.
Normal service was resumed on Sunday evening in a Banner Ladies backlash that sent reverberations around the county and beyond following a commanding final victory over West Clare Gaels in Shanahan McNamara Park in Doonbeg.
Just as West Clare manager Michael Carmody’s name is synonymous in football circles in the West Clare penninsula, so is the name of Banner Ladies manager J.J. O’Dea throughout North Clare.
