"Clare Champion" Oct. 8th 1938 Kilmaley's Victory

A rousing contest between Kilmaley and Kilnamona in the divisional final resulted in a win for the former on the scores 5-4 to 2-2. Kilnamona had the wind in the first half but a stern Kilmaley resistance countered its advantage and the latter led at the interval by 2-3 to 1-1.
It looked easy for them in the second half but there was a surprise and almost a sensation in store. Kilnamona threw themselves into the fray and evoked tremendous excitement by coming within a point of their opponents. It was all set between them and the struggle waxed strenuous.
Kilmaley, however, played well and stood up to the challenge and the final stages brought them a substantial lead on the scores as given above.
Amongst those who came to see the game was Very Rev. R. Burke PP Ogonnelloe, whose encouragement and advice did much to bring Kilmaley to the place they now hold.
He was delighted with their display and the first to congratulate him was Rev. P. Loughnane, who has been the inspiration of the Kilnamona team and is a cousin of the celebrated Feakle hurlers of the name.
Kilmaley now meet Ogonnelloe in the intermediate B final on October 23rd at Tulla or Kilkishen and Fr. Burke's loyalties will be evenly divided between two teams, both of whom he has helped to the final.
For the winners, T. Neylon, M. Murphy, Daffy, Keane, Clune and Burke were outstanding while prominent for the gallant losers were McTigue, Connors, McGuane, Hehir, O'Leary and Sullivan.
