1995 All-Ireland Hurling Final: Clare v Offaly
One of the most vibrant All-Ireland championships reaches a climax with the meeting of champions Offaly and Ger Loughnane’s resurgent Clare. It had been 63 years since Clare won the Munster championship but on a day of high emotion they dethroned holders Limerick in Thurles with the momentum taking them through Galway to reach the final. Offaly’s highpoint was victory in an
extraordinary Leinster final with old rivals Kilkenny.
Clare go into this as outsiders but the intensity of their support and the drive of players like Brian Lohan and Anthony Daly mean they won’t go down easily against the classy champions. Clare 1-13 Offaly 2-08
