Printed letter, or circular, seeking funding for the training of the Clare Hurling Team, 1915;

‘We felt proud when our senior and junior hurlers annexed both All-Ireland Championships last season. It was the first time Clare accomplished such as feat, and in all circles of the GAA there was great surprise. How did it happen that we triumphed so magnificently over Cork at Thurles, and so decisively over Leix (Laois) at Dublin last year? How did we come to the front so suddenly? By scientific training. By the same methods we mean to keep the year the honours we have won. Our men are foregathering at Quin. They will receive every care under the direction of a specially engaged trainer. We are meeting Cork at Limerick on September 26th for the Final of the Munster Championship. We meant to win! We can win! To carry out our programme we must appeal form assistance to our sympathisers. The smallest subscription, which will help to bring to Clare another All-Ireland victory, will be thankfully received and duly acknowledged by any member of the Training Committee. (siged) Rev. W. Scanlan, PP, Tubber; Rev. J McCready, CC., Quin; Rev W O’ Kennedy, The College, Ennis; Rev. J Smith, CC, Newmarket-on-Fergus; Rev.
