A senior member of the Clare hurling panel believes a strong panel is being built during the Munster Hurling League.
Clare’s wins over Kerry and Cork mean the Banner have reached Sunday’s Final, in which they will go up against Limerick.
The real focus though is on the National League, which starts at the end of this month, and in the new format of the Munster Championship which will see the Banner play four games in five weeks, beginning in May.
Many pundits believe this will put a strain on sides, who will have to use even more players than before.
Conor Cleary, who plays his club hurling with Kilmaley, believes these games are evidence that Clare are building a stronger squad.
He made his comments when speaking with Clare FM’s Syl O’Connor, in the aftermath of Sunday’s victory over Cork.
