CLARE HAVE BOOKED their place in the semi-finals of the Munster Minor Football Championship.

The Banner recorded an emphatic 2-11 to 0-5 win over Limerick in tonight’s play-off at Cusack Park in Ennis, setting up a meeting with Tipperary at Semple Stadium on Wednesday, 13 May.

Despite playing against the wind, Clare took a 1-7 to 0-3 lead in at half-time this evening, with the goal coming courtesy of Seanie Malone.

Cormac Murray scored Clare’s second goal midway through the second-half, as they closed out what was ultimately a comfortable 12-point victory against their neighbours.

Offaly will meet Kildare in the Leinster Minor Football Championship next week in Tullamore, after the Faithful County defeated Westmeath tonight on a 2-13 to 1-10 scoreline at Cusack Park in Mullingar.

Shane Tierney’s goal helped Offaly into a 1-8 to 0-8 interval advantage, and Jack Walsh netted late on to secure the six-point win.
