    Looking at the warm up on TV there isn't a cone to be seen for the Clare warm up, there's usually 100s of them out for us

    Is the rte camera lower down than normal?


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,486 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    Seems a lot lower alright


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,486 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    First Clare puck out and the Limerick defender catches the ball uncontested


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,486 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    Clare try a quick puck out and are pinged for it, next puck out isn't won either, it's going to be a long day. Lots of changes on the Clare team

    Tony Kelly on the frees for Clare today


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,486 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    Ref isn't allowing quick puck outs, 5 minutes in 3-1 to Limerick


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,118 ✭✭✭✭ RMAOK


    Its probably the lack of a crowd at the match, but it feels more like a challenge match than a league final/Munster quarter final.


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,486 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    Looks like Tony Kelly is lining out at corner forward


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,584 ✭✭✭ dirkmeister


    That camera angle is a pure disaster.

    5-2 to Limerick after 8 minutes, Clare with the breeze. Looks like a challenge match with under 20s playing senior


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,486 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    Clare's first point from play, well intercepted by Malone, 5-4 to Limerick after 10

    I'd say the cameraman and whatever assistants are not allowed in the usual gantry just like Joanne and the two boys are outside rather than in the studio in the corner


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,486 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    All square after 12 minutes

    You could well be right

    Clare into the lead, 6-5, Kelly with a good point from play.

    Michael Muircheartaigh had the great ability to make even the most mundane match sound like an All Ireland final.

    Marty Morrissey on the other hand has the annoying ability to make an All Ireand final sound like a mundane challenge match.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,534 ✭✭✭ Chalk McHugh


    First impressions i like this camera angle.


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,486 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    Kelly is going well so far, seems to be given a free role.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,534 ✭✭✭ Chalk McHugh


    Thurles sod looking pristine.

    No bite in this at all. First round of the league would have more intensity. I'm worried the hurling will suffer badly with no crowd to feed off.

    Going well but can't do it on his own


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,118 ✭✭✭✭ RMAOK


    Tony kelly is on fire atm


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,534 ✭✭✭ Chalk McHugh


    Decent match. Kelly the star performer so far. Clare hanging in there.


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,486 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    Waterbreak, Clare up 9 points to 7, Kelly is flying it, this position of corner forward to go wherever he wants is really suiting him. You'd imagine Limerick will put a man marker on him now to nullify him which will hopefully free someone else up.

    I turn on the Irish commentary as soon as I hear Marty, but he's on the Irish commentary as well today :(

    Double whammy. If you turned on Clare FM he's probably on that too. There's no escaping him!

    Loving the updates, keep them coming please!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,534 ✭✭✭ Chalk McHugh


    Goalkeeper puckout infringement that even VAR wouldn't have seen. Bit harsh that.

    Our puck out is under big pressure, this will only get worse in the second half when we are against the wind.

    10-9 to Limerick after 25 and a half minutes
