O’Loughlin warns county players to up their game


Clare senior hurling manager Ger O’Loughlin has sounded a warning to his players  that they will need to improve their performances if they are to stay involved  with the county side.

The Clare boss was speaking  in the aftermath of the county’s Waterford crystal win over I T Tralee in Sixmilebridge by 1-19 to 2-13.


The win sets up a  meeting  with LIT in next week’s q-final but  the former All Ireland winners says some players will need to improve or face the prospect of not playing again.

Meanwhile the Clare senior footballers booked their place in the semi finals of the McGrath cup after a 10 points to  nine win over CIT in Cooraclare.

The victory means they will now play Waterford in the competitions semi finals next weekend.
