Ballyea are preparing for the All Ireland Club Hurling Final on St Patricks Day.
The Clare and Munster champions sealed their spot in Croke Park with a dramatic 1-19 to 2-14 win over St Thomas’s
Ballyea led by 1-17 to 1-5 as the game edged toward full time, with the Galway men mounting a comeback that saw them cut that gap to just one point in the closing stages.
Tony Kelly’s dramatic late point ensured their place in history, and sees them become just the second Clare club this century to book their place in the decider.
Ballyea coach Fergal Hegarty says they’re thrilled to get over the line
Next up for Ballyea is a St Patricks Day date in Croke Park with either Dublin’s Cuala or Derry’s Slaughtneil.
They meet in 3 weeks time in the other semi final
