Clare senior hurling manager Brian Lohan is thanking the Banner faithful for their support in helping the team reach back to back Munster finals.

Diarmuid Ryan’s late winner saw Clare overcome Cork by 2-22 to 3-18 in Cusack Park, with their third consecutive win meaning they are guaranteed a spot in the provincial decider.

Conor Cleary is facing a race against time to be fit for that game, after he was forced off with a suspected dislocated shoulder before half-time.


Lohan says players drew on the home support to get them over the line after a difficult start to the campaign.

Elsewhere in the Munster championship, a John McGrath free with the last action of the game saw Tipperary and Limerick share the spoils in Thurles.

It means that Tipperary can seal their place in the Munster final next weekend if they overcome Waterford, while it is shaping up to be a straight shootout for survival when Limerick and Cork meet.
