Gary Brennan brushed off regard for a joining that saw him play dual games and transport some-more than 500k in reduction than 24 hours.
First on Saturday dusk Brennan was partial of a Ballyea side that kick St Thomas in a All-Ireland Club Senior Hurling Championship semi-final on Thurles.
That diversion threw in during 5.0pm and afterwards during 2.0pm on Sunday he was in Celtic Park, Derry, for Clare’s opening Allianz Football League Division 2 diversion opposite a Oak Leaf County.
He started and finished both games – that’s some-more than 130 mins of rival action. And he’ll be behind in work training in St Flannan’s Ennis on Monday morning.
Derry didn’t have any of their Slaughtneil players, as they prepared for their All-Ireland bar hurling and football semi-final double date. Brennan played football as Clare were so penetrating to get life in Division dual off to a winning start.
And they scarcely did, heading low into damage time usually for James Kielt to measure late and earn Derry a 0-11 to 1-8 draw.
“I unequivocally wasn’t concerned as we would have wanted to be on Saturday – we felt we wasn’t adult to a representation and a power of a game,” pronounced Brennan modestly, vocalization to RTÉ Sport.
“I felt good entrance in today, there were no excuses, and it doesn’t feel so good now – it feels like a loss, actually. We had gotten ourselves into a good winning position and let it trip again.
“A lot of teams have come to Derry and gotten zero so we’re going behind down a highway with a indicate so we’ll take that and get prepared for Down subsequent weekend.
“Derry during home were always going to quarrel to a really finish and we knew that, though a figure went and we didn’t conflict them as we would have wanted. we consider 1-2 was all we got in a second half, 3 scores, and we would have hoped to do improved than that.”
Clare take on Down, who mislaid heavily to Fermanagh on Saturday night, subsequent weekend in Ennis and it stays to be seen possibly Brennan is accessible for that one.
With Ballyea’s All-Ireland final opposite possibly Slaughtneil or Cuala of Dublin he could be forgiven for holding a mangle from inter-county movement until after St Patrick’s Day.
But with a actor as committed as 27-year-old Brennan, it would be no warn to see him personification opposite a Mourne County during Cusack Park.
