Clare’s senior hurling boss says he’s well aware of the task his side face in attempting to overcome Waterford in this afternoon’s All Ireland Quarter Final.
Brian Lohan’s men take on the Deise in Pairc Ui Chaoimh later, with a semi final date in Croke Park at stake.
The Banner come into the game off the back of victories over Wexford and Laois over the last two weekends, with Waterford togging out just six days after their Munster final loss to Limerick.
Lohan has named an unchanged side from that win over Wexford last weekend – and he says Waterford have plenty of men in form coming into the game.
A former Munster and All Ireland winner with Clare is hopeful Tony Kelly can repeat some of his ‘Roy Of The Rovers’ form this afternoon.
The Ballyea man has scored 1-45 across Clare’s three championship games so far and is already being mooted as a possible Hurler Of The Year candidate.
Clare legend Jamesie O Connor says the Banner’s forward line are helping Kelly to thrive ahead of today’s quarter final.
Throw-in for that match in Páirc Uí Chaoimh is at 3:45 this afternoon and we’ll have live coverage here on Clare FM with Matt Waters Clare Fruit & Veg Market, Turnpike Road, and Geraghty’s Spar & Off-License, Turnpike, Ennis.
