The Raftery Cup finals were played last Wednesday evening in Corofin. A large crowd attended and was provided with excellent entertainment in all the five game that took place. The evening commenced with an entertaining exhibition 7-a-side game between Ballinderry and Belclare. We then had the two shield finals. Sylane defeated St. Colman’s (Cummer) by 7-8 to 2-4 in the 7-a-side final. The 9-a-side shield final was a much closer affair as Annagh defeated Ballinderry by 3-9 to 3-2. The two main finals then followed, with Castlehackett having a good win over Corrandrum on a scoreline of 9-7 to 5-5 in the 7-a-side Raftery Cup final. The 9-a-side final between Belclare and St. Colman’s provided the best and closed game of the evening. At half time Belclare held a four-point lead of 2-6 to 1-5. The game ebbed and flowed in the second half with St Colman’s taking a two-point lead mid way through the half. However, Belclare hit back to win out by two points in an exciting finish on a scoreline of 3-12 to 3-10. The future of Corofin football looks very bright following the great displays of skill and commitment show by all 10 teams who took part on the evening. Thanks again to all in the club who organised the event, all referees and officials and to the Raftery family for sponsoring.

Under 14s drew with Monivea / Abbeyknockmoy in the divisional league final on a scoreline of 1-11 to 3-5. No date is available yet for the replay.
