Clare solve fixture conundrum

Published 01/11/2013 | 01:00

CLARE'S club football backlog has finally been solved after all five teams involved agreed to play the county final just 24 hours before the county champions are due to compete in the Munster club SFC championship.

After a deadlock earlier this week it has finally been agreed that – whoever is involved – the county SFC final will take place on Saturday, November 16 and the winners will play against the champions of Waterford or Limerick in Munster the next day.

The problem occurred when the county SFC quarter-final between Cooraclare and Doonbeg did not go ahead last weekend.

Cooraclare did not turn up due to the funeral of a parent of one of their players. The county board insisted the fixture go ahead but Doonbeg, despite doing a warm-up, did not line out or present a team-sheet to the referee and then issued a statement saying they did not want to receive a walkover.

With Munster adamant that their schedule could not be changed, Clare, originally due to have their county football final on November 10, were caught in a bind and needed the clubs to make some compromise.

The Doonbeg versus Cooraclare quarter-final will now take place tomorrow in Kilmihil and the winner will play Lissycassey on Saturday week.

The other football semi-final – between Cratloe and Eire Og – was already tabled to go ahead this Sunday in Clarecastle.
