Good Clare Hurling Story
Ger Loughnane and the Clare team are having a chat in the dressing room before their match against Tipperary.
"OK, I know they're shite..", explains Ger, "but we have to play them to keep the Munster Council happy, after all
the trouble last year".
"I'll tell you what..", pipes up Brian Lohan, "You guys go down the pub and I'll play them on my own".
"Seems reasonable.", replies Ger and with that they all go down to a local beside Pairc Ui Chaoimh and start playing pool.
Just as the second half starts, Ollie Baker remembers the match and flicks the pub telly onto Aertal : Clare 1-5 , Tipperary 1-4 is the scoreline.
Very confidently they resume their pool match for the next 35 minutes until switching back to Aertal, the
final score reads: Clare 1-5 , Tipperary 1-5 (Tipp equalised in 70th minute).
"WHAT!!", they exclaim and run back to Pairc Ui Chaoimh where they find Lohan sitting in the dressing room with
his head in his hands.
"What the hell happened, Brian?", bellows Anthony Daly.
Lohan sheepishly replies, "I got sent off 5 minutes into the second half".
