The manager of the county champion St. Joseph’s Miltown side has paid tribute to his players, after they collected the Jack Daly Cup.

The West Clare outfit overcame their neighbours Ennistymon on a final scoreline of 0-14 to 0-8 at Cusack Park yesterday, but only after a tight first half.

The sides were level 0-4 apiece 10 minutes before the break, and Miltown manager Michael Neylon admits his team had to make some changes to get on top.


This, he says, was led by their players and he was quick to praise them after they were crowned champions once more:

St. Joseph’s will be next in action on November 11th, when they’ll be away to either Limerick’s Adare, or The Nire of Waterford in the Munster semi-final.

Those two sides square off next weekend.

While Clare hurling champions Ballyea have learned their fate for the Munster Championship.

They’ll face Waterford’s Ballygunner, after they overcame Midleton of Cork 1-18 to 2-13 yesterday.

That game will take place at Walsh Park in Waterford this coming Sunday at 1:30.
