Clare hurling manager Brian Lohan says it was a “good call” to allow yesterday’s game with Laois to go ahead.
The weather conditions were the big talking point out of the game at Cusack Park, as players on both sides battled wind, rain and hail.
Clare prevailed, winning 0-17 to 0-9, with Tony Kelly’s nine points – including four from play – key on the day.
Scheduled matches in Galway and Limerick were called off yesterday, and afterwards Lohan was asked if he felt the game in Ennis should have been postponed too.
Elsewhere, in the Allianz Hurling League, Davy Fitzgerald’s Wexford overcame Kilkenny by two points, 1-16 to 1-14, in a result that moves Clare to the top of the table.
The Banner travel to Nowlan Park next weekend.
Dublin defeated Carlow on Saturday.
In Group A yesterday, Cork overcame Westmeath in Mullingar.
