Clare Senior Hurling selector Donal Óg Cusack believes the Banner County have missed out a cherished sporting moment following their exit from the Munster Senior Hurling Championship.
Óg Cusack told Newstalk that a chance to collect a cherished medal in Irish sport has been lost by the men in Saffron and Blue. “We’ve got no choice now, I don’t think anyone coming up here today wanted to go down that route. The Munster final is a cherished day and it’s a cherished medal in Irish sport and in a hurling man’s point of view. That was definitely our aim today so we’ll just have to take this on the chin.”
The former Cork netminder cited the concession of Maurice Shanahan’ goal and frees as costly factors in Clare’s seven point defeat. “We conceded a lot of frees and a goal that we wouldn’t be happy with, but these things happen. It’s the Championship and if you look at the three games, they’ve been totally different and got three different results.”
