In May 1954, Kilmihil beat Scarrif in Senior Football. In the next round Kilmihil were drawn against Ennis Faughs but gave a walkover because three players were injured, and unfit to play. Faughs got to the County Final as did Kilrush. The Final was fixed for Miltown but Kilrush refused to play in Miltown so there was no Senior Championship Final played in 1954. At a Co. Board meeting Murt Kelly said that Kilmihil had spent £3,000 on a new field, £1,500 of which had been collected in the parish. He went on to say that there had not been a Co. Final in West Clare for a long time and he asked the Board and the two teams in the Final, to play the Final in Kilmihil for the opening of the Park. Kilrush were willing to play in Kilmihil, but Ennis Faughs wanted to play in Miltown. A vote was then taken between Kilmihil and Miltown, and Miltown won. This led to a lot of controversy and eventually led to the abandonment of the Co. Final for that year.
