Kilrush Shamrocks are aiming to use their 16-point loss to defending senior football champions St. Joseph’s Miltown Malbay as a lesson learned.
Last year’s intermediate winners face Kilmihil on Saturday with a quarter-final place up for grabs.
Kilrush marked their top flight arrival with victory over Naomh Eoin/O’Curry’s but were given plenty to consider the second day out.
Manager Graham Shine says his players have tasted the level they must aspire to.
Throw-in at Cooraclare on Saturday is 2.30pm and we’ll have regular updates here on Clare FM.
