Four teams have secured their places in the county senior football championship quarter-finals.

And Éire Óg have one foot in the knock out stages after they beat Cratloe in Cusack Park yesterday by 0-16 to 1-9.

Gavin Cooney kicked nine points for the Ennis outfit who will advance providing they avoid an eight-point loss to Clondegad in two weeks.


Éire Óg manager Paul Madden has commended the way they approached the game when speaking to Clare FM’s Darren Kelly.

Despite their defeat, Cratloe’s scoring difference ensures they will be in the final eight and are joined by Ennistymon, Kilmurry/Ibrickane and St. Joseph’s Miltown Malbay.

Goals from Cathal Malone and David Fitzgerald gave Ennistymon a 2-13 to 0-8 win over Cooraclare.

Kilmurry/Ibrickane also enjoyed a double digit margin as they prevailed 2-16 to 0-6 against Corofin.

And defending champions St. Joseph’s Miltown Malbay beat Kilrush Shamrocks 3-13 to 0-6.

Miltown Malbay boss David O’Brien tells Clare FM’s Eoin Brennan they took time to stamp their authority on the contest.

In the final game played yesterday evening in Doonbeg, Kilmihil maintained their championship interest with a 0-15 to 2-6 victory, enough to eliminate the Naomh Eoin/O’Curry’s amalgamation.
