Clare 1-16 Laois 2-11
The good: we won. The bad: just about. 66th minute goal from Clare saved them. Laois fans presumably felt robbed. “Early days” yet, but if any serious attempt is to be made in the league this year, then this was a shocking attempt to start that effort. Young blood on the field, some displaying quite a bit of potential including Darragh Clancy and Declan O’Rourke. It’d be nice to see a more cohesive effort including these newer players… but at what expense?
