Hurling Fans Relish Shane O'Donnell's Return To Frightening 2013 Form

Hurling Fans Relish Shane O'Donnell's Return To Frightening 2013 Form
By Gavan Casey Updated

Clare booked their place in their first Munster final since 2008 with a hard-fought but ultimately convincing win over Limerick at Semple Stadium.

The 19,000 or so in attendance at Thurles and viewers on Sky Sports witnessed a fine game, but more to the point, the ominous return to form of Shane O'Donnell.

The 22-year-old Ennis man has cut a rather isolated figure since exploding onto the scene against Cork in 2013, with injuries too playing their part in halting his progress, but he fired 2-2 in a man of the match display today which left hurling fans chomping at the bit.

Much of his success - most of which arrived in the first half - was down to his not being completely isolated atop Clare's attack. While the forwards around him had a relatively quiet evening, they at least committed Limerick's defenders high up the park more so than Clare have tended to do since their famous All-Ireland victory four years ago, and O'Donnell reaped the rewards much to the excitement of both Clare supporters and neutral fans.
