MEN'S NOTES:

Congratulations to our under 21 team who won the North Board A Final played in Tuam Stadium on Monday 28 October. Corofin were one point behind at half time (1-5 to 0-9), but rallied well in the second half to run out deserving winners on a final score of:– Corofin 1-15 to Claregalway 1-13. Man of the match was Liam Silke, while joint captains, Conor McNamara and Conor Keady, accepted the cup. Corofin will play Salthill / Knocknacarra in the County Final.

Corofin will play Castlebar Mitchels in the Connacht championship semi final on Sunday 10 November at a Galway venue. Castlebar had a good win in the Mayo Football Final defeating Breaffy by 1-11 0-8.

Reminder that our fundraising auction, to help with ongoing costs associated with our senior team’s campaign in the Connacht Club Championship, takes place in the Palm Tree, Ballyglunin on Saturday 9 November. A selection of items, which will be auctioned on the night, are now displayed on the club’s website. We need your support with further auction items and urge that you attend on the night.

Following Portumna’s win in the County Senior Hurling Final, and Seán Armstrong winning the individual top scorer in the 2013 Galway Senior Football Championship, our ‘Prediction Quiz’ Leaderboard has been updated. We have a new leader – Adrian Silke, who takes over from long time leader – Patrick Collins. Two events remain to be counted, namely the 2013 National Hurler and Footballer of the year.
For the record, Alan O’Donovan was runner up in the individual top scorer competition, despite not having played in the county final.

As our lotto was not won, our jackpot now stands at €6,050. We had two match 3s – Úna Molloy & Helen Roche. The numbers drawn were 8, 9, 12, 32. Next week’s draw is in the Palm Tree.
