Clare join Wexford hurlers in last eight

Clare edge Treaty following surprise Wexford win over Cork

Wexford grabbed a surprise victory over Cork in a Senior Hurling Championship Qualifier clash, before Clare progressed past Limerick.

The Model and Banner sides move on to the All-Ireland quarter-finals.


Wexford defeated Cork by 0-23 to 1-17 in the first half of the double header at Semple Stadium, securing their first Championship triumph over the Rebels since the 1956 All-Ireland final.

With Conor McDonald in fine form, the Model troops led by three points at the break.

David Dunne missed a brace of excellent goal-scoring opportunities, allowing Cork to stay well in touch with Wexford as the game entered in closing stages.

The Leinster men were made to pay when Daniel Kearney pounced on defensive errors to fire home a low strike and edge the Leesiders ahead.

The game, however, was levelled by Lee Chin as Wexford recovered, and a brace of Liam Og McGovern helped Liam Dunne's men to bring an end to Cork's work for the summer.

Immediately following Wexford's win, Clare beat Limerick by 0-19 to 0-15 in Thurles.

Thanks largely to Podge Collins and Tony Kelly, Clare led by six points at the end of the first period.

Kelly was again to the fore in a second half that saw Limerick repeatedly close in on the Banner County before being pushed back to arm's length.

Davy Fitzgerald's men kept their heads above water to move into the last eight of the national competition.
