O'Connor confident of return to form

Clare's Patrick O'Connor and Seamus Harnedy of Cork.
Clare captain Patrick O'Connor is confident that the side can bounce back from their Munster SHC final defeat to Cork.
The Banner have the opportunity to do so when they take on Tipperary in the All-Ireland SHC qualifiers on Saturday week.
O'Connor who was taken off during the defeat to the Rebels is adamant that they will not fear Tipp as they didn't fear Cork either.
“You know you can take on anyone on your day but you also know that you need to be at your best to make sure of the result and that will be our focus over the next couple of weeks,” O'Connor told the Clare Champion.
“That's an immediate aim coming quickly down the road. We need to get back up on the horse because the season could wrap up very quickly if we were to dwell on this.”
