COUNTY TITLES were won by Cratloe and Kilmihil in the senior and intermediate football finals over the weekend, their success dominate the conversation on the latest episode of The Water Break.

A third ever Clare SFC title was won by Cratloe as they held off the challenge of St Breckan’s prevailing on a score of 1-10 1-8.

Less than 24 hours previous, Kilmihil sealed their return to the senior ranks when accounting for Kilrush Shamrocks by the smallest of margins. They claimed the Talty Stores Cup with a 1-13 1-12 victory.

Joining us on the latest episode of The Water Break are Clare U20 football manager, Michael Neylon who steered St Joseph’s Miltown to senior success in 2015 and 2018, ex Clare senior football manager Micheál McDermott who was in charge of Kilmurry Ibrickane when they contested the All-Ireland club decider plus Clare GAA’s Head of Performance, Rob Mulcahy a former S&C coach with St Breckan’s and the Clare senior footballers.

On the clár:

  • How Cratloe adopted a more defensive approach
  • Cratloe were fitter and stronger than they had been for a long time
  • Picking the defence of St Breckan’s brought joy for Cratloe
  • Injuries to Jack Sheedy and Colm O’Brien big blows for St Breckan’s
  • Colm Collins’ winning know-how
  • Talented St Breckan’s will be more dangerous in 2024 final (if they get there!)
  • Referee’s performance
  • Munster club beckons for Cratloe
  • Continued improvement in 2023 offers solace for Kilrush Shamrocks
  • Calm heads and better balance crucial to Kilmihil
