We have heard the stories of where people were when JFK was shot in 1963 or when the Pope came to Ireland in 1979, but now we want the stories of this generation – where were you when Clare won the All-Ireland Hurling Final in 2013?
The Clare People is compiling stories of where the people of Clare were on September 28 and we want to hear from you. These stories can be short or long, crazy or heart warming, from home or abroad. Maybe you were at home with loved ones, at a wedding, in Croke Park, thousands of miles away or in a maternity ward… Every tale of that day of triumph is important to us.
To share your experience of September 28, 2013 with us please email [email protected] or private mail us on our Facebook page.

  1. I was up in Croke Park for the first All Ireland and the second All Ireland final. It was the best two games ever I have seen. COME ON THE BANNER, we will do it again next year. From Clare’s no one supporter.
