With the Clare and Wexford All-Ireland Hurling quarter-final clash set to throw in this Saturday, here's everything you need to know before going into the game.


This will be Wexford's second time facing Wexford in the All-Ireland quarter-final in the last three years. The last time these two sides came head to head in the quarter-final, Clare was the narrow victor in 2022, winning by just four points.

This year, Clare made it all the way to the Munster Hurling Final before falling at the final hurdle in Limerick. On the other hand, Wexford finished third in the Leinster round-robin before going on to beat Laois in the All-Ireland preliminary quarter-final.

If Clare manages to come out the victors on Saturday, they'll secure their spot in an All-Ireland semi-final for the third successive year, while the last time Wexford were in an All-Ireland semi-final was in 2019.
