Upcoming Club minor and adult championships
A little nod and clap on the back to our junior B teams who have been hitting the high notes over the past week. The junior ladies last Sunday had a great win in an away game v Parteen Meelick, this was followed up by a great performance from our junior hurlers v Doora Barefield where they dug deep to emerge 3.12 to 2.13 winners v Doora Barefield. Last evening in Clareabbey our junior footballers bested Lissycasey on a scoreline of 4.05 to 1.07. A successful week all round with our senior and junior hurlers also making progress in their respective campaigns. Well done lads and ladies, hail hail.
Lissycasey will host our round 3 clash v Doonbeg on Sunday, this game is not being streamed by Clare GAA, we will have live updates on the club Twitter page @CLGEireOgInis
