Clare have secured their second win of the 2017 Allianz National Hurling League.
A late surge from the Banner saw them beat Dublin 0-20 to 1-15 in Cusack Park after a tough battle.
The Dubs led by five points at the break thanks to Ryan O’Dwyers goal, but led by a flawless display from David Reidy on placed balls, the defending champions ground out the win.
Joint manager Donal Moloney says they knew it wouldn’t be easy
Elsewhere this weekend Cork beat Waterford while Tipperary and Kilkenny shared the spoils.
It means that ahead of the final round in two weeks time, Tipperary are the only side guaranteed to avoid the relegation playoff.
