Enticing games in store after the 2021 Clare GAA Club Championship draws

The senior football championship is arguably headlining, as a repeat of the last three finals is set in what is undoubtedly the death group.
2020 champions Kilmurry Ibrickane will face off against the Cratloe team they beat to claim that crown, while they will face former rivals and 2019 champions Miltown, who in turn will face off against the Ennistymon team they have beaten to win Jack Daly in 2018.
