In an almost identical score to their last Championship meeting, Clare’s Senior camogie side ran out 3-11 to 1-8 winners over Derry in their Liberty Insurance Championship clash at Celtic Park this afternoon.
Clare successfully bounced back from consecutive defeats in the League final and Munster Championship to get their All Ireland series campaign off to a flying start.
Indeed, things looked ominous for Derry after just 21 minutes when Clare took a 3-5 to 0-4 lead thanks to goals from Deirdre Murphy, Fiona Lafferty and Lisa Loughnane.
The Banner defeated today’s opponents on a similar scoreline last year when they won by 3-11 to 1-6.
FT Liberty Insurance Senior C'ship Clare 3-11 Derry 1-8 Well done to all!
