Clare’s first citizen was forced to remind elected representatives that they were attending a meeting of the County Council and not the County Board at this month’s sitting.

Concluding action in local club championships caught the attention of county councillors as they gathered for the November meeting.

In what was a hybrid meeting, some councillors were gathered in the Council Chamber with others attending virtually via Microsoft Teams, Cllr Pat Daly (FF) was first to the microphone and he used the opportunity to congratulate Éire Óg on being crowned Clare SFC champions for the first time in fifteen years.

“I am a former Chairman of the club and I was delighted to see people celebrating at the clubhouse,” Cllr Daly stated. “Great credit is due to Paul Madden, when Kilmurry Ibricakne came at them, they stood up to pressure”.

Corofin’s dramatic finish to secure the title of Clare IFC champions was referenced by Cllr Joe Killeen (FF) who also offered his commiserations to Kildysart.

Killaloe’s return to the top tier of the hurling championship in Clare was also lauded, Cllr Tony O’Brien remarked, “While I have the microphone I might as well congratulate Smith O’Briens, we won’t be left out or found wanting”.

Following the three contributions, all of which occurred in succession, Cllr PJ Ryan (IND), Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council piped up from the top table, “this isn’t a county board meeting,” he reminded his fellow elected members.
