Former All-Ireland club winners regain senior status in Clare

St Joseph’s Doora-Barefield have won the intermediate championship.

FORMER ALL-IRELAND CLUB champions St Joseph’s Doora-Barefield have regained their senior status in Clare with victory in the intermediate championship.

The club, which has produced Banner All-Ireland winners such as Jamesie O’Connor, Ollie Baker and Seanie McMahon, confirmed their return to the senior ranks with a 1-12 to 0-10 victory against Broadford in Cusack Park this afternoon.

Alan O’Neill bagged 1-1 in a four-minute second-half spell to edge Doora-Barefield ahead by 1-8 to 0-8 and it was a lead that they never relinquished.

Trailing 0-7 to 0-6 at the interval, O’Neill’s goal soon afterwards was the spark that Doora-Barefield needed, it coming after he fetched a long ball which he booted to the net.

O’Neill earlier had a goal disallowed when the referee ruled that he had crossed the line during his penalty strike.

St Joseph’s Doora-Barefield were relegated to intermediate hurling in 2014, 13 years after winning their last county title and 15 years after their All-Ireland club success.
