The senior hurlers were neck and neck with Ballyea at the end of normal time in the first round of the Clare Senior Hurling Championship last Saturday evening in Cusack Park. It was the Ballyea who pushed on in extra time to claim a spot in the winners group.

Clooney Quin will now play Clarecastle in the loosers group on August 17/18th. Clarecastle had a difficult outing against Sixmilebridge also on Saturday in Cusack Park in their first round game.

It will be all to play for for Clooney Quin against Clarecastle and they will need the parish behind them to drive on their championship ambitions.

Normal time Clooney Quin 2 15 Ballyea 1 18

After ET         Clooney Quin 2 19 Ballyea 3 23
