As Clare stormed past the challenge of Limerick to book their place in the last eight of the All-Ireland Intermediate Ladies Football Championship, it was their ability to get goals that killed off the challenge of their opponents.
Gráinne Nolan hit a total 2-05 with both goals coming from the penalty spot. Speaking to Jerome Quinn after the game, the Clare attacker felt concentration levels slipped on their behalf which allowed Limerick to score but overall she was very happy to be through to the All-Ireland quarter-final.
Nolan was one of seven players that featured who line out for Banner Ladies. “It’s great to play with your county but to have your club teammates there aswell is great, at the end of the day it doesn’t matter what club you’re from you’re here to play for your county and do the best you can on the day”.
There is a belief among the Clare forwards in their own ability and this helps when shooting in front of goal. “Any of the forwards we’re confident we can score goals” Grainne said.
