David Reidy determined to boost Clare's low league medal haul

Anyone wondering whether an Allianz Hurling League winners' medal carries much weight or not should listen to Clare forward David Reidy’s opinion on the matter.

The 30-year-old has one already in his possession having lined out in the middle of the park for the thrilling two-game saga with Waterford in 2016, but that was the county’s one and only success since 1978 when Noel Casey’s stunning goal and a two-goal salvo from Martin McKeogh saw off Kilkenny.

That team of '78 was welcomed home by thousands of supporters and paraded through the streets of Ennis on an open-top bus as bonfires were lit across the county, and while a win against the Cats on Saturday evening won’t spark similar scenes, it will still be an important moment in both Clare - and this team’s - history.

"If you look back at Clare’s history we don’t have enough medals. As a Clare team we don’t have enough silverware so it’s a big opportunity for us to get national silverware in our back pockets," the Éire Óg man said at an Allianz event to promote Saturday's decider.

"We don’t have too many of them in Clare so we’ll be going all out to win on Saturday against Kilkenny."

"At the start of the year we said we’d take it game by game and see where that leaves us, and it brings us to an Allianz League national final," he continued.

"We took it game by game, we haven’t lost, we drew one and a couple of wins under the belt so we’re looking forward to it. We met Kilkenny earlier on in the year at home in Cusack Park [a game they won by three points] so it’s something to look forward to so close to championship - a championship kind of feel before going into the Munster championship."
