Fermanagh 0-17
Clare 0-9

FOLLOWING a week of turmoil, John O'Neill's charges gave their manager something to smile about as they produced their best display of the league to date.

Clare were four points up within the opening 10 minutes. But a reshuffle in defence, and Daniel Kille's introduction from the bench, brought new life to Fermanagh.

Two points up at the break, Fermanagh dominated the second half. Connor Quigley excelled, and John O'Flanagan, Kille and Paul Ward all scored.

Fermanagh played some excellent football as Clare wilted.

At the end, the home fans gave their side a standing ovation, with the players and their management returning the compliment.
