O’Connell Hails Brilliant Banner Effort As Cats Edge Classic In All Ireland Minor Hurling Semi Final

Clare’s minor hurling manager is praising the character his side showed to battle to the end in their All Ireland semi final loss to Kilkenny.

A three point win for the Cats after extra-time sees them set up a final showdown with Tipperary in two weeks time.

The Banner produced a storming comeback to reel in a four point deficit to force the added period but Kilkenny finished best to claim a 2-23 to 2-20 victory.


O’Connell says he couldn’t have asked for anything more from his players
