Mike McNamara's tenure as Clare hurling manager is under threat after it emerged the players have sent a letter to the County Board seeking his removal from the post.

It appears that the players are disappointed with the county's lack of progress last season, and they have made their feelings clear to the board.

They panel have requested that the unsigned letter be read out at a County Board meeting tonight.

McNamara still has one year left to run on a three year term, and is believed to be eager to continue in his role as manager of the county.
