The Considine Sisters

Eimear and Ailish Considine are two of the most dynamic forwards in ladies’ football in Clare.

In 2008 they played a prominent role in the success of the Club in winning the Clare Intermediate Championship, Munster Junior Club Championship & the All Ireland Junior Club Championship.

The combined scores in the Championship amounted to 27 goals and 62 points and between them they accounted for 16 goals and 37 points (Eimear 8-16), Ailish (8-21).

Ailish won “Player of the Match” in the County Final and Eimear won “Player of the March” in the Munster Final.

Eimear is also an accomplished Camogie player and on the day before the Munster Club Final she lined out with Kilmaley in the Camogie Co. Final.

2008 was indeed a very busy year for Eimear, she played in four All Ireland Finals and the Division 2 League Final for Clare.

The All Ireland Finals were as follows:

  1. All Ireland Intermediate Football Final for Clare.
  2. All Ireland Minor Camogie Final for Clare.
  3. All Ireland Junior Club Camogie Final for Kilmaley, and,
  4. All Ireland Junior Club Football Final with Kilmihil.

She was also selected by the Clare People as the “Ladies Footballer of the Year” in 2008.

Eimear took up Rugby and is now a regular on the Ladies Irish Rugby Team along with playing for Munster.


Ailish was invited to Australia for a Trial in Australian Rules Football and was selected to play for Adelaide Crows and played a prominent role in helping the Club to win the Championship in 2019.
