The race for the 2021 Clare U21A hurling title is down to the final four.

New champions will be crowned after holders Kilmaley were knocked out in their quarter final tie.

With no championship played in 2020, it meant Kilmaley came into this year’s campaign as the defending champions following their victory two years ago.


On a difficult day for both sides, it was Corofin-Ruan who battled through the conditions to move through to the last four with a 0-13 to 1-5 win.

Meanwhile Clonlara, who were minor champions three years ago, came away from Inagh with a 3-15 to 2-11 win over the Combo.

Newmarket on Fergus edged an epic derby showdown with Sixmilebridge as a late Peter Power goal proved crucial in a 4-15 to 1-22 win.

Scariff-Ogonnelloe overcame Clarecastle by 2-15 to 0-12, thanks to goals at the beginning of either half.

It means the semi finals will see Newmarket taking on Clonlara while Scariff-Ogonnelloe face Corofin-Ruan, with those games scheduled for two weeks time.

Meanwhile in the U21B championship,

Broadford overcame Tulla to set up a quarter final showdown with Crusheen-Tubber.

The North Clare side got the better of Feakle-Killanena to advance to the last eight.

Bodyke-O’Callaghan’s Mills will face Wolfe Tones in the other quarter final after their win over St Joseph’s.

Meanwhile, Ballyea beat Cratloe to secure a semi final spot while Clooney-Quin are also into the last four after victory over Eire Og.
