After drawing Kerry at the semi-final stage in five of the last seven seasons, Colm Collins must surely believe that 2020 will finally be the year his efforts with Clare are rewarded with a provincial final berth.
The Munster SFC draw was made last night with heavy-hitters Cork and Kerry set to meet in the semi-final. Clare won’t have it all their own way, however.
The Bannerside must navigate their way through Tipperary before a potential showdown with either Waterford or Limerick in a Munster semi-final.
Galway face the trip stateside to face New York in the opening game of the season while Mayo must face Leitrim to qualify for a potential semi-final showdown with either the Rossies or the Exiles.
Sligo meanwhile, await the winners of Galway and New York in the other semi-final.
In the east, Dublin kick off their bid for six-in-a-row with a quarter-final meeting with Westmeath in the Leinster SFC.
As of yet, the Ulster SFC draw has not been made.
