Tony Kelly rifled 0-17 in a memorable display for Clare, who were beaten by Limerick at Semple Stadium.
The Ballyea clubman was immense, drilling eight scores from play for the Banner, who were eventually overpowered by Limerick.
Donal Burke was at his brilliant best for Dublin, who overcame Laois at Croke Park in the Leinster SHC on Saturday evening.
The prolific Burke struck 1-16, including 1-4 from play, for Mattie Kenny's outfit.
Limerick had several outstanding players against Clare in the Munster SHC, but Gearoid Hegarty's blend of graft and craft was hugely impressive.
Hegarty nailed five points, but his work rate and ability to win possession mattered deeply.
