We travel to Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada, Carrick-on-Shannon on Sunday to play St. Brigids of Roscommon in the Connacht Senior Club Final. The game starts at 2.00 pm. The support we had in Castlebar really did help the team and was much appreciated. We ask for your continued support on Sunday, it does make a difference. We wish the team and mentors the very best of luck in the final.

Our underage players had a busy weekend participating in the David Canney tournament (under 13) and the Pete Burke and Enda Colleran tournaments (under 11 and 10).
The David Canney tournament took place on Sunday morning in Belclare with Corofin reclaiming the cup in a very sporting tournament. On behalf of the Corofin GAA club and the Canney family we wish to thank Annaghdown, Dunmore and Monivea/Abbey for making it such a great morning of football.
Our under 11s and 10s travelled to Salthill to play in the Pete Burke and the Enda Colleran tournaments. The under 11s were beaten in the semi-final of the Pete Burke by Mullingar Shamrocks by 1 point. Mullingar went on to win the final. The under 10s were beaten by Bearna in final of the Enda Colleran by a goal. Well done to all involved and thanks to Salthill-Knocknacarra for the invite to the tournament.

CLUB NOTES:

Our seniors avenged defeats to Castlebar Mitchels in 2013 and 2015 with a hard earned but deserved 3 point victory over Mitchels in Castlebar on Sunday. Corofin lead by 6 points to 4 at half time, but Mitchels fought back and an exciting last quarter saw the teams finish level at full time on a scoreline of 11 points each. However, Corofin dominated the extra time to run out convincing winners by 0-17 to 0-14. Well done to the team on an excellent display. The man of the match award went to Ian Burke, who was joint top scored for Corofin with Jason Leonard, with both on 4 points.

We now travel to Carrick-on-Shannon to play St. Brigids of Roscommon on 27 November. St.Brigid's had a comprehensive victory over Aughawillan of Leitrim by 2-18 to 1-7 in the other semi final also played on Sunday.

CLUB NOTES:

We send best wishes to our senior team and management as they take on Castlebar Mitchels in the Connacht Club Semi Final. The game takes place on Sunday in MacHale Park, Castlebar with throw in at 2.00 pm. Your support, as we renew rivalry with Castlebar, will be much appreciated and is always a great help to the team.

Congratulations to Daithí Burke, who received his second hurling all-star award in a row at the 2016 GAA/GPA Opel All-Stars Awards in the Convention Centre in Dublin on Friday.

Congrats to our Junior A team who won the Division 6 (North) League final defeating Dunmore MacHales by 1-10 to 0-6. Seán Silke scored the goal. Connor McNamara, who also had the honour of getting the man-of-the-match award, captained the team. The team also featured Trevor Burke and David Morris who added to their considerable medal collection. Well done lads on a great end to the year.

Our under 12's rounded off a great year by collecting their fifth trophy of the season when they won their own James Collins Memorial Tournament on Sunday. James was a true stalwart of Corofin GAA club and he spearheaded the development of training facilities and a professional approach to training in the nineties. His "magic bottle" cured many aches and strains and he'd have been proud to see the young lads from Moycullen, Clarinbridge, Dunmore and his own Corofin showing great skill, determination and respect for each other and the game on a beautiful sunny autumn day. James’ son Michael presented the trophy to Corofin's captain Robbie Winston. Well done to all players and mentors on a great year.

The club offers its sympathy to Dylan Canney on the death of his father, Kevin Geoghegan and to the Geoghegan family Lavally, Tuam. May he rest in peace.

Lotto numbers drawn were 6, 12, 29, 30. We had no winners. Seller’s prize went to David Comer. Next week’s jackpot is €3,500 and draw is in Club office.
