SCARIFF/OGONNELLOE’s bid for a second Munster senior camogie title has received a major lift with Susan Vaughan cleared to play.

Vaughan was dismissed on a straight red card as the clock entered additional time in Scariff/Ogonnelloe’s Munster semi-final win over Inniscarra.

On Tuesday night, an appeal by the East Clare club to Mike Flannery’s decision was successful clearing the former Clare senior and minor player to take to the field this Saturday in Mallow.

Immediate reaction to the sending off was of confusion among the Scariff/Ogonnelloe management with boss David Sullivan confident from the get-go that the decision would be overturned.

Sullivan told The Clare Echo, “Whatever it takes to win games has been our mantra on the field all year, it will be the same off it in terms of Susan this week, whatever it takes to get Susan playing that Munster final we’re willing to do it”.

He added, “Please God the patrons of camogie will get to see Susan Vaughan playing in a Munster final, she is a class act, she has represented her country in rugby in the sevens, she has represented Clare at county level in camogie, what she has done for this club on and off the field, the level of professionalism she has is just incredible, it is not about winning or losing next Saturday, it is about getting players like Susan to play in Munster finals because that is the level she is at and that’s what she deserves to do”.
