Bouncing west out of Ennis, something changes. Suddenly the place names and signposts hold a different association. Clare is hurling heartland no doubt, but point your nose for the Atlantic and you are deep in football country.

Some of the county’s heavy-hitting clubs sit cheek by jowl there. Kilkee, Kilrush and Kilmurry Ibrickane are necklaced along the coastline. Cooraclare are maybe 10 minutes inland. And amongst them sits Doonbeg.
