To be fair waterford football has never been any better. This is actually a pretty decent minor team we have though, i wouldnt read too much into the hiding from kerry as this is their fourth quality minor team in a row and very few counties will get close to them.

Does anyone championship game v Limerick is on 28th/29th May? Munster website doesn't have the confirmed date.

Beating Tipp - another great result. The scoreline of 0-10 to 0-05 gives the impression of a relatively dour game. Onwards and upwards

How did the practice game go against Laois?

They lost that challenge game but Saturday's game will be a different story. Laois are in turmoil at the moment so it depends on their attude on the day. They certainly are capable of winning this but that remains to be seen. Clare are always a very hard team to beat in either hurling or football and I always love watching them play.

The fact thet laois have home avantage is a major factor. That as well as the fact that laois have some excellebt footballers in begley, quigley, o'loughlin and kingston. The midfield battle is some important, whoever comes out on top there will surely win!

A good win for Clare, well deserved. I have to say, I was not that surprised. Clare are now a division 2 team and Laois are a division 4 team. If the roles were reversed everyone would say Laois should win. Clare have 5/6 really good footballers now and a fantastic team spirit.

I hope they can give Mayo a right good game and with a bit of luck they could cause an upset. Would be a massive win for Clare football if they did, probably biggest since beating Cork back in 97.

Tough draw but anything is possible outside of the top 2 at home I think. We can't let them get ahead early.

Fantastic league by the footballers to retain status in D2. Colm Collins has worked wonders in fairness.

In fairness what you're doing down there is very admirable and we're envious. Collin's deserves so much credit. Its a great time for Clare football supporters which I know there are vast amounts of and long may it continue. 3 messages in 9 months you would hardly tell!

Congrats

Only for draws against Cavan and tipp that could have been narrow wins, they could have been in contention for promotion, but i think next year might be year to have a right crack at it. It is a remarkable job Collins is doing, especially as they lost about 6 lads from last year to retirement, injury and immigration. They also play nice football. Fair play to all involved.

Not sure what to make of the qualifier draw, firstly we have to be pleased to have avoided the big 3 teams - mayo, tyrone and monaghan. but it would have been nice to have gotten a home draw. ideally against leitrim.
Armagh away will be a tough one up there, but armagh wouldnt be considered a top team. if we had them at home id have fancied our chances, but armagh will have the edge now. still its not the worst draw we could have got and there is a decent chance of advancing.

Ah jaysus where do I begin:

Start in McHughs
Go to Lucas's
Work your way up to Considines (you can stop in Griffins for some real charm)
From Considines go to Paddy Quinns in the market
Quinns to Brogans where they should have some trad on
From Brogans to Knoxs (where yo can stay to 2am) or go to Nora Culligans (beside Knoxs) and
afterwards go to Cruises which will be open until 2/2.30am.

The maximum walk between pubs is about 200-300 meters.

If you do what I say it is likely you will have a brilliant time Saturday night but be too sick to go to the game Sunday.

Seriously though here are loads of great pubs in Ennis and the above is a handful. Of the above I love McHughs, Lucas's, Brogans and Cruises but I could name another ten that would be great also.
