The west Clare men had the perfect start to the second half with Jack Morrissey finding the back of the net, but Eire Óg kept their composure to hit the next three in a row to go back in front.

Roche then hit two more points for the Blues to give them the slenderest of leads, before Morrissey found the back of the net again to send his side 2-5 to 0-7 clear inside the closing stages.

He then notched his hat trick to put the icing on the cake, with Roche then taking his personal tally for the day to 0-6 with another point to end proceedings.
