Failte róimh go dtí an Chláir
I am delighted to welcome you all back once again for our preparatory tournament for the U14 inter-league teams around the country. I know preparations for Kennedy Cup are well under way for you all in your respective counties and I hope our tournament, and the competition and camaraderie to be found here, will aid you all in reaching your goals as squads, coaches and individual players.
This tournament is now in its 13th year and it is humbling to think of all the talented young players who have come to play in Clare as part of their Kennedy Cup preparations. Many of those players have now gone on to play League of Ireland, reached international squads and some have made the leap to teams in wealthier leagues.
I hope each and every one of you have a fantastic time while you are with us in Clare. I hope our tournament is a help to you in your preparations and development. Lastly I wish you all much success in your endeavours both in your careers and in approaching tournaments, unless you’re playing a Clare team of course.

Our Tournament Director is Denis Hynes. Denis is our FAI County Development Officer here in Clare and has worked tirelessly for the promotion of the game over the last number of years.
The tournament was the brainchild of Denis all those years ago and it’s wonderful to see it as a fixture in the footballing calendar still for those preparing for the Kennedy Cup.
