Erin’s Own advance to the semi final stage for the second successive year following an impressive win over Clara in Ballyragget on Saturday.Space was at a premimun throughout, with both defences on top and the vast majority of scores coming from frees, resulting in a dogged game, which the locals were better equipped to grind out the result. The Comer defence once again produced the goods closing down the Clara forwards, who had been most impressive against the Feninans the previous Sunday, forcing them to shoot from distance, clocking up 17 wides to our total of 8. The half back line also contributed 5 points of their sides total. the midfield pairing of Ronan Ryan and Gordon Byrne worked tirelessy and the forwards were a constant threat.All can now look forward to semi final day on October 10th.
