On Saturday afternoon locals in Ennis were treated to a unique occasion as the Banner GAA Grounds played host to an intercounty minor hurling game between Clare and Offaly. Clare were victorious on the day. The Clare panel contains 2 Banner GAA Ennis players, dual star Shane Meehan, who captains the footballers and Niall Walsh. For the game versus Offaly on Saturday Niall was honoured to captain Clare playing in his home club pitch. Congrats to Niall.
Last week both Clare minor teams hurling and football were victorious with Shane Meehan captaining the footballers in their comprehensive win in the first round of the championship versus Limerick and then our County minor hurlers, captained by our own Niall Walsh on Saturday versus Offaly. A fantastic week for 2 of our up and coming stars.
