This weekend the Clare senior football championship will take centre stage with three games down for decision. 

On Saturday in Cooraclare, Doonbeg will play Kilmihil in a play-off for a place in the quarter-final.

In their last outing, Doonbeg lost out to Éire Óg while Kilmihil were beaten by St Breckan’s.


Clare FM analyst, Joe Garry, excepts a tight battle on Saturday and expects Doonbeg to try and spread the scoring burden and not just rely on David Tubridy.

Meanwhile, Miltown take on Cooraclare in Quilty on Saturday.

In their last outing Cooraclare performed well against county champions, Kilmurry Ibrickane.

However they will have to face into a relegation play-off regardless of the result against Miltown.

Clare FM analyst, Rory Hickey, feels that Cooraclare can use this game to prepare for their relegation fixtures to come.
