Former chairman of Clare GAA Michael McDonagh is spearheading a campaign for the county board to follow the Cork GAA lead by issuing a commemorative jersey marking one of the most high profile victims of the War of Independence in the Banner County.
Delegates to the Clare GAA Convention have given their unanimous support to long-standing secretary Pat Fitzgerald after it was revealed that the war between the top table of the county board and alleged online trolls is now the subject of a Garda investigation.
AFTER nearly two months of turmoil, the player/manager controversy that rocked Clare GAA reached its conclusion at the county’s annual county convention last night when, in a departure from the official Clár, former star Ger ‘Sparrow’ O’Loughlin was endorsed as the new manager of the senior hurling team.
CLARE GAA chiefs are hopeful that a six month ban hanging over football manager John Kennedy will be backdated to allow him coach the Banner next season. Kennedy’s unusually stiff suspension from the Kerry County Board is due to go before a Munster Council meeting tonight on appeal.
