Clare Gaa Thread mark II


Shane O’Donnell has been offered a Fulbright scholarship to Harvard starting in September. Looks like this will be his last summer hurling for Clare.


What’s that?


Scholarship for international exchange students to attend US universities.


An alright sort is Sen J William Fulbright

The Fulbright Program was set up by Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946 and is the largest U.S. international exchange program in the world. It offers opportunities for students, scholars, and professionals to undertake postgraduate study, research, and teaching in 155 countries worldwide.

The Fulbright Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.


He will be a great addition to Tipp (Boston)


Not really … they are usually only for a year and you are not allowed back into the states for 3 years after receiving it.


No he will be back around march


Why the restriction on re-entry? That calibre of graduate would be much sought-after I’d have thought


Fuck off Jonny Foreigner


Fair play to Shane. He’s obviously a bright chap.


Did he ever get the spare Mickey that time?


Yeah, maybe that’s the reason , protect American academics and their jobs Or an immigration thing… Not sure really but it’s one of the main stipulations.


His a very brainy guy


Clare 3-7 Louth 0-6 at halftime in the Park. Two goals in the last five minutes of the half putting a bit of a veneer on what was a sloppy enough showing up to that.


Clare 3-11 Louth 1-11 edging into injury time. Bumper attendance of 1072.


He’s a gent by all accounts.

Fairplay to him.


Not a bad league run. Lots of new faces introduced. Still building.

Help of God we will Joe, one of our own young lads leading them out
