With Clare’s place in the semi-finals of the Oscar Traynor confirmed, the identity of their opponents became somewhat clearer this evening.
Mick Shiel’s side will take on the winners of Dublin AUL vs Inishowen with the quarter-final between both taking place this Sunday. The Banner will be on the road for the semi-final, something the side have had to adjust to in recent years.
Limerick are also waiting in the semi-finals and they will know their opponents on Friday following the last eight tie between Kerry and Wexford.
Dublin AUL are now going for five Oscar Traynor titles in a row and should they overcome Inishowen it will mean a repeat of the 2014 decider where the home side edged out the Banner 2-0.
