The race for the Jack Daly Cup is down to the final five teams.


Defending champions St. Joseph’s Miltown Malbay have advanced in the evening game to a fifth consecutive semi-final.


Darragh McDonagh, Eoin and Conor Cleary were among the early scorers as they built up a strong lead in their 0-12 to 1-5 victory over Lissycasey in Cooraclare.

Connor Finnucane got Lissycasey’s goal just before half-time but they couldn’t bridge the gap during the second 30 minutes.


Cratloe are through after an emphatic victory over Ennistymon in Cusack Park.

Cathal McInerney’s 42nd minute goal put Colm Collins’ team beyond reach as they maintained their double ambitions winning by 1-16 to 0-8.

Despite getting the first three points, Ennistymon only added one more before the break and trailed by 0-8 to 0-4.


And they’ll be joined in the final four by Kilmurry/Ibrickane who beat Kilmihil by 2-14 to 1-10 in Doonbeg.

Steven Moloney scored two penalties for the winners with Philip Ryan responding with a Kilmihil major.


The last quarter-final takes place on Sunday when Éire Óg attempt to maintain their perfect record against a Doonbeg outfit still chasing their first win.

Throw-in at Miltown Malbay is 3.45pm and we’ll have regular updates here on Clare FM.
