Clare’s footballers enjoyed success in Cusack Park this afternoon beating Cork on a scoreline of Clare 2-11 Cork 0-09.

Still hurting from a poor performance against Galway, Clare were determined not to let Cork get the better of them and won comfortably in the end.

The hurlers meanwhile suffered defeat however in Thurles where Tipperary won out 0-28 to the Banner’s 0-21.

Pat joined Clare FM in 1990 where he worked as researcher initially and later presented several different programmes including the station’s flagship current affairs programme.

He was also the station’s News Editor and Deputy Controller of Programmes. Despite leaving in 2003 to pursue a career as a freelance journalist, he continues to work with the station to this day.

As well as being the Clare Herald’s Chief Reporter Pat is also freelance journalist and broadcaster, contributing to Ireland’s national newspapers and is a regular contributor to national broadcasters.
