Don't be talking about Croke Park yet. Tir Chonnail Gaels should win that game in London!

Well done Kilmurray Ibrickane in winning two munster titles decade 2004 and now 2009. Not been greedy
but with right frame of mind last year would have won that one too! Should have 2 in a row now and 3 titles
but no complaining a great result! Its not often a clare team beats a kerry team in finals! Ok in semi finals
and first rounds but not in finals and certainly not in that fashion in the dying minutes! Priceless a very sweet
one! That with Doonbegs munster club breakthrough and in 1998 has been great for club football.

However be like clare now in hurling dont be content with a munster title go for the all ireland stay composed
over the xmas keep off the booze. This is yer second time round so make a go of it for the all ireland.

Well done yesterday, it must give Clare football a massive boost. Lads TCG's arent an easy proposition especially in London. Last year Corofin of Galway went over there and but for 2 sloppy goals they may have come home with their tails between their legs. They shouldnt be under estimated. They are a fair outfit. Heres hoping ye do the business!!

Well to you Kilmurry- Ibrickane Lads make sure you prepare now and be on top of your game when you come over to London.....they are very arrogant all of a sudden because its a Clare team they are playing....they think you will be over and not know what hit you, and be beaten....over on a drinking session one fella the UK form and be motivated to prove a point when you come over.....SHOW THEM THAT CLARE BOYS ARE NOT A PUSH OVER.........SHOW THEM WHY YOU ARE MUNSTER CHAMPIONS AND A TOP SIDE

Well done KIB however dont fall into the Tir Connells Trap. An all ireland final apperance is at least not neyond KIB
provided they play aswell and better and dont take the foot of the pedal for the xmas! Clare teams in football who come
out of munster in football have a tendency to do that more so than clare hurling teams from Clare!
When Clare won the munster u21 this year for the first time they proved as clare hurlers do that they also could win the
all ireland at the first attempt even against kilkenny cats! The same in 1995 when Clare Senior Hurlers won the
munster final they won the all ireland in the first go! The same with Sixmilebridge and Doorabarefield hurlers
in the nineties they won munster but also the all irelands!

So KIB come on now this is the second time ye won the munster so no excuses like 2004! Ye have to try to at least
get to the all ireland club final to prove that clare football at least at club level is up there with the best in ireland
not just munster! And if ye get to the final well then anything can happen as its a final and both will go for it!
At least if ye get to the all ireland final ye will prove ye are just not a great football club from clare who can win an odd
munster but ye are even better!

Were ye to win the all ireland well then that would be fairytale stuff and I hope ye do.
However to get to an all ireland football final even at club level would be one step better than even 1992 when
Clare got to the all ireland semifinal!

The epectation must be now to get to the final at least which would be a dream for clare football probably better
than 1992 as a final!, and then who knows win it out!

Then we could say we had great footballers in Clare aswell as hurlers! Let that be the challenge now KIB to do it!
If ye fail at least ye have won 2 munsters but if ye win betters still and mighty for Clare football in general!

The second time around ye should be trying to give the all ireland a right go and not just be content with a munster title!

If you are moving or thinking about moving to London and are interested in playing gaelic football then why not think about joining North London Shamrocks GFC. The North London Shamrocks are based in the Enfield area of North London. Players of the club hail from all over the north London area. We have our own training facilities and are also one of the very few London clubs who have access to their own pitch.

North London Shamrocks are a very progressive club and reached the London intermediate football final in 2008 where we were beaten in a replay. We have a thriving underage club and we entered a reserve team into competition for the first time this year. We're also a very friendly bunch of lads and always welcome new faces down to the club. If you're interested in playing Gaelic football and expanding your social network please get in touch.

With your star player Odhran O'Dwyer out could this be the shock of the year already?

Clare in football won in 1992 in munster but then didnt go on to win the all ireland like the clare hurlers did at first ask in 1995.
Clare Clubs like Doonbeg won the Munster Club in 1998 but underperformed in the all ireland semifinal as did Kilmurray in 2004
and also underperformed and lost the all ireland club semifinal.

I would like to think this time having won their second Munster Club title in 5 years and having won the final against a club from
a traditional football county of kerry that this time more than 2004 kilmurray are there on real merit and should be anxious
to prove that they are real contenders for the all ireland club football title.

However that said its Clare football and yes I would be cautious and not over optimistic against Tir Conail and even
at that it may be hard to win it. So Yes I wouldnt be surprised what would happen and a defeat maybe not as much a shock
as one thinks it maybe now that it has been flagged that it could happen! At the end of the day Clare Intercounty team is not
much ahead of London in the intercounty ranks if at all, but Clare has great potential if only the clubs pulled together and had ambition.

I will be brave here though if kilmurray wins the banana skin game against Tir Conail, they will have great chance in my view of doing
what no previous clare county team or clare club that came out of munster previously failed to do, i.e winning the all ireland semifinal
against portlaoise and causing a huge surprise by qualifying for Clares first senior football final in club or county.
If they just qualify for the final I think that could be a bigger turning point for Clare football as a whole than in 1992 when Clare lost
the all ireland semifinal to Dublin in a great game of football.

kilmurrayibrickane were so poor against tirconail, if they dont improve they will get a hammering from portlaoise!
How did they win the munster final at all they have gone so poor since christmas!
I predict unless they improve rapidly they will be hammered in the all ireland semifinal just like 2004!
