Scramble for Clare v Galway tickets begins

The Clare County GAA Board have issued a reminder to supporters to get their tickets well in advance for Saturday week’s Hurling Qualifier against Galway in Cusack Park.

The derby clash is a potential sell out as Clare fans will be hoping for a repeat of the 2007 game where Ger Loughnane’s Galway were beaten in dramatic fashion.

Supporters are being encouraged to contact their local club over the weekend as ticket allocations will be with the parishes by Monday evening.
