Clare’s masters footballers are chasing national glory this Saturday when they take on Kildare.
The last Banner side standing turned their poor group form around to earn their place in the All-Ireland Plate Final.
Wins over Sligo and Westmeath have allowed them surpass last year’s agonising one-point semi-final loss to Down.
And manager Michael Considine says they could see their improvement against the Lake County.
Throw-in at Kiltoom GAA club, Roscommon on Saturday is 1pm.
