Guilfoyle Confident Clare Are Ready To Take Next Step In All Ireland SHC Semi-Final

A former Clare hurling captain feels the current squad are in a strong position to book their spot in the All Ireland hurling final.

Brian Lohan’s side go to Croke Park on Saturday evening to face the Leinster champions Kilkenny, with Clare coming into the game with an unbeaten record in the 2022 championship.

Brian Cody’s outfit won their third consecutive provincial title with victory over Galway, and are without a competitive fixture in the last four weeks.

Meanwhile, a former Kilkenny manager insists the gap between games for the Cats is not going to have impacted on their preparations.

Nicky Brennan, who was Kilkenny manager when these sides met in the 1997 All Ireland semi-final, says Brian Cody will have used the time to make sure his side are ready for the test.
