The manager of the newcomers to the Clare Premier Division for the new season says they are excited by the challenge of playing at the top level.
Kilrush Rangers begin life back in the top tier with a trip to take on Bridge United in Saturday evening’s opening round of games.
The West Clare based will be represented by players from each neighbouring parish, with Rangers now being the only adult club in the area.
Manager Michael Clair says they are looking forward to getting the year underway.
You can hear a full preview of the new season on Clare FM’s Sideline View on Friday evening from 6pm.
