Last Thursday evening the Senior team played An Bhearna in Milltown for their rescheduled Round 5 of the Senior Championship Group 2. Despite the difficult conditions, the lads started the brightest and opened the scoring with a goal from Tony gill in the 11th minute. They added 4 unanswered points before the break, Corofin 1-4 An Bhearna 0-0. The second half was a much more even affair but the lads maintained control of the scoreboard and never looked in doubt of their clean-sweep of wins in Group 2. The game finished Corofin 1-8 An Bhearna 0-4.

This Saturday the Intermediates play Kilkerrin-Clonberne at 1:30pm in Milltown for their Intermediate Championship Relegation Round 2.


On Saturday the Senior team played Claregalway in Knockdoemore for their Senior Championship Semi-Final. It was a difficult start for the girls as Claregalway scored 3 goals in the first half. However, our girls were not to be deflated as they pulled a goal back through Róisín Leonard and traded point for point throughout the game. Unfortunately, the team were unable to close the gap and the game finished Corofin 1-11 Claregalway 3-12.

Despite falling short in the Semi-Final, it was a great year for the Seniors with a great League campaign; reaching the Semi-Final of Division 1, a very successful Coen Cup campaign as they won the Shield Final and we were treated to some great individual and team performances throughout the Championship campaign. Well done to the players and Management team.

On Sunday afternoon, the Junior B team hosted a strong and much-fancied Annaghdown team in Corofin pitch for their Junior B Championship Semi-Final. It was lovely conditions for football and the teams did not disappoint the spectators. Both teams were creating and kicking some great scores, but it was goals again that proved the difference. Heather O’Leary and Lorraine Ryder were able to put the ball into the Annaghdown net but in the end, it was not enough to turn the game. Final score Corofin 2-5 Annaghdown 4-6.

Again, the same as with the Seniors, the Club are very proud of the Junior B team’s achievements this year. The girls reached the Final of Division 5, won the Junior Coen Cup in style and went toe-to-toe against some very strong teams in the championship, right up to the Semi-Final. Well done to the players and Management team.


Last Thursday the U-14 team played their A Final in Corofin Pitch against a very strong Oranmore-Maree in very challenging conditions. It was a low-scoring game, as the rain did not make it easy to play football, but it was Oranmore-Maree who adapted better and finished the game with a 3-score advantage. Corofin 0-3 Oranmore-Maree 2-4.

The U14 girls Blue Team travelled out to Clifden on Saturday morning for their Division 2 Shield Semi-Final against Gráinne Mhaols. It was tough conditions for both teams but a great team effort from our girls to grind out the win. The game finished Corofin 7-04 (25) Gráinne Mhaols 5-08 (23). Best of luck in the Final, girls!

On Saturday morning our U-10 Boys travelled to Creggs, Annaghdown for the Treacy Melia Memorial Blitz and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all the players. It was a great morning of very enjoyable football and impressive skill. Thank you to all in Annaghdown for organising.

The U-8 Girls team headed to Annaghdown on Sunday morning for the “A Barbie Blitz” which was yet another great spectacle of football for everyone to enjoy. A big bualadh bos to everyone in Annaghdown for putting on two great blitz’s two days in a row.

The David Canney Memorial Tournament was held on Sunday morning in Belclare, with the first game throwing in at 11:30am. We were delighted to host Doora-Barefield and Micheál Breathnach’s, with both teams bringing a wealth of skill and passion. The tournament played off three very competitive and enjoyable games, with the Corofin team emerging as Tournament Winners with two wins from their two games. A big thank you to our two guest clubs for making the journey and taking part.


The club offers its sympathy to the families and friends of the following who have died recently:

Annie Byrne (Née Quinn), Kingsbury, London; formerly Ballinderry, Corofin

Vincent Furey, Co Clare; brother of Dolores Burke, Cahernaheerick, Belclare

May they rest in peace.
