Kilkerrin Clonberne, Galway, celebrate after overcoming Glencar Manorhamilton, Leitrim, in the senior championship final at the 2023 currentaccount.ie All-Ireland Club 7s tournament at Naomh Mearng GAA Club in Malahide, Dublin.

The Galway side, also the reigning currentaccount.ie All-Ireland Senior club champions, were in imperious form at the annual event held at the Naomh Mearnóg and St Sylvester’s clubs in Dublin.

It is the Galway club's fourth Senior Club 7s title, having previous won in 2014, 2016 and 2022.

Kilkerrin-Clonberne racked up big totals during the group stages and, after accounting for Armagh’s Clann Éireann in the semi-finals, they enjoyed a 4-10 to 1-7 victory against Leitrim opponents Glencar-Manorhamilton in the final.

The Noone sisters, Hannah, Eva and Lynsey, spearheaded the side, which was boosted by the Ward twins, Nicola and Louise, and by half-time the Galway side was 2-7 to 1-3 ahead.

Lynsey Noone and Caitlin Boyle grabbed the goals in the opening half, while Eva Noone and Nicola Ward added to that tally as Kilkerrin-Clonberne were comfortable winners.

In the Senior Shield final, last year’s beaten Cup finalists, Tipperary's Fethard, got the better of Roscommon’s Clann na Gael by 5-6 to 2-6. The Intermediate Cup final was won by Shelmalier of Wexford, with Galway's Bearna collecting the Intermediate Shield. In the Junior Cup and Shield competitions respectively, there were victories for Galway’s Grainne Mhaols and Walterstown from Meath.
