Congratulations to our senior team and their mentors on their superb win in the AIB Club Championship Connacht Final, played in MacHale Park, Castlebar on Sunday. The final score was Corofin 2-10 to Ballintubber 1-9. Trailing by 1-2 to 1-5 at half time the team rallied in the second half to claim the Club’s 9th Connacht title and our first three in a row of provincial titles. The Corofin goals were scored by Micheál Lundy (first half) and Ian Burke. Thanks once again to our supporters who travelled in great numbers to the game and whose encouragement to the players was appreciated by them.
We will now play in the All-Ireland Semi Final in February against the Ulster Champions.


Our final league division 1 game is against Annaghdown. The game is scheduled for Wednesday evening at 8.00 pm in Cregg. A win or draw for Corofin will see them through to the league final against Mountbellew.


The Jack McHugh Memorial Cup game was played under the floodlights of Corofin’s pitch on Wednesday night last.

Many thanks to both panels and to the supporters who came out to see the action.

Corofin under 11's hosted Lucan Sarsfields on Saturday in Belclare in their final game of 2018. There was a fine display of football on show by both sides and there even was a special appearance by Corofin Senior Manager Kevin O'Brien and Senior Captain Ciarán 'Gizzy' McGrath to give some great words of inspiration for the youngsters.

There were smiles all round with Sarsfields even managing to get their hands on Andy Merrigan (if only for a few minutes!) The future is bright. Many thanks to all involved with this panel of players all year. Thanks also to the parents for the support they have given.
