Clare began their 2021 Kennedy Cup campaign with a comprehensive win over West Cork on Saturday.

Clare 3
West Cork 0
Venue: Riverside Park, Shannon

Davy Wall’s side took the lead following a great move on thirteen minutes. Matt Jones and Ethnik Aliu put Eoin Devanney clear on the right wing and he crossed the ball for the run of the striker Tiernan Adelu who made no mistake.

From that moment Clare seemed a bit more in control of the game with West Cork trying to counter attack with direct balls over the top but the Clare defenders Glen McNamara, Aidan Moloney, Daniel Brody and Liam Heffernan dealt well with the visitors.

The second half picked up with Clare enjoying most of the possession and in the seventh minute of the second half the attempt Adelu was saved again by the very good West Cork goalkeeper but it was finished from close range by Oliver Hawes.

Hawes slotted home Clare’s third goal when substitute Kevin Hanley was sharp to spot his run.
