  • Galway club Corofin will travel to the Big Apple next week for a challenge match with New York, as the Exiles prepare for what they hope will be a first ever win in the Connacht senior football championship next month.

    New York have gone close to defeating Galway and Roscommon in recent years in the championship, and have invited the recently crowned All-Ireland club champions to come to New York next week to play a warm-up game.

    The Galway club, who recently won their third All-Ireland club title, will use the trip as a fundraising event and also to celebrate their recent national crown and their success of 2015.

    Corofin club chairman Michael Ryder says they will be bringing the players from 2015 as well, and it’s a reward for the current side and the 2015 squad.

    The Corofin footballers will fly out next Thursday and the match against New York will take place that evening in Gaelic Park.

    New York will be hoping for their first championship win when they take on Leitrim at Gaelic Park on May 6.

  • Corofin full-forward Martin Farragher, who was controversially sent off in the All-Ireland club football semi-final against Moorefield last month, has been cleared to play in the final on St. Patrick’s Day.

    Much to the relief of player and club, the GAA’s Central Hearings Committee decided that he had no case to answer so he will be able to take his place on the Galway champions’ team for the clash with Nemo Rangers.

    Following consultation with a linesman, Tipperary referee, Derek O’Mahoney dismissed Farragher after an incident in the semi-final which TV footage showed was not as serious as it might have appeared.

    The footage proved conclusively that Farragher was not guilty of any wrongdoing but, having seen sent off on a straight red card, he faced a ban which would have kept him out of the All-Ireland final.

    He took his case to CHC, who accepted that he was innocent.

  • The throw-in times for the All Ireland Club Championship finals have been confirmed.

    The football final meeting of Corofin and Nemo Rangers will be first up at Croke Park on Patrick's Day, with a 2pm throw-in time.

    That's followed by the hurling final meeting of defending champions Cuala and Limerick's Na Piarsaigh at quarter-to-4.

     

  • Stephen Rochford has had an eventful two years at the helm of Mayo football. Two defeats to Galway in 2016 & 2017 have seen his team's written off early each championship season before going on to reach the All Ireland final and lose out narrowly to Dublin in thrillers. Will this year be the year that he finally gets one over on the maroon & white and go on to land a first Connacht title for Mayo since 2015 or will it be third time unlucky for the former Corofin boss? We chatted to him as he gets ready to send his side into battle and you can see that interview now.
