A FINAL PAIRING that was not on the cards to the surface this weekend when Clonlara and Crusheen do battle in the Clare SHC final.

Sixty minutes separate either side from claiming the Canon Hamilton and bridging a wait of fifteen years in the case of Clonlara or eleven for Crusheen.

On the latest episode of The Water Break, Ross O’Donoghue is joined by members of both panels who were part of each club’s last success in the Clare SHC final.

Darach Honan was part of the Clonlara full-forward line to claim the club’s second ever senior title in 2008 while Brendan McMahon now based in Kerry was part of the Crusheen panel to claim back to back success in 2010 and 2011.

Neutrality is provided in the guise of Michael Murphy, Tulla’s championship winning captain from 2007.

Corofin’s showdown with Sixmilebridge in the intermediate final plus interviews with Donal Madden and Michael Browne are all included in the video podcast.

On the clár:

  • Donal Madden interview
  • Michael Browne interview
  • Corofin and Sixmilebridge square off in intermediate final
  • Glory Days – What’s it like to win big in Clare hurling
  • Is it possible to actually enjoy the week of a county final and still perform on the day.
  • How does club history impact on the players
  • Process v outcomes – how much talk should there be about winning?
  • Clonlara and Crusheen’s strengths and weakness – scoring power, defensive strength, strength in depth, work rate, team spirit, ability to perform on the day, fitness, coaching and tactics.
  • Key matchups
  • Predictions
