clare gaa jerseyClare County Board Chairman Michael McDonagh has called for rethink of the fixtures schedule for intercounty and club games.

The Miltown Malbay clubman says the All Ireland Championships should commence in April and be completed by late July to enable club championships to be played off during August and September.
