Clarecastle manager Brian Russell says everyone is looking forward to the challenge of taking on neighbours and county champions Ballyea this weekend.
The Magpies come into the game off the back of a battling draw against O’Callaghan’s Mills last time out, as they reeled in a four point deficit to claim a point.
