  • Reigning senior county champions Ballintubber will be looking to make it five county titles this decade when they take on the men from East Mayo.

    After being denied by two in-a-row All-Ireland winners Corofin in last year’s Connacht final Ballintubber are a team brimming with experience.

    Ballintubber captain Damien Coleman says he isn’t concerned with the favourites tag in this encounter.

    Meanwhile, Ballaghaderreen are in their first county final since they last won the Moclair Cup back in 2012.

    The club has brought through a wave of underage talent since then like Sharoize Akram and Cian Hanley.

    Star player David Drake said he is delighted to get back to the summit with a new group.

  • Ballintubber and Corofin will meet again in this year’s Connacht Club Championship following the Mayo side’s five point win over Glencar Manorhamilton.

     

    The Mayo Champions were in control in the second half but at the break only led by a point.

     

    A well worked Ballintubber goal at the start of the second half finished by Alan Plunkett put them firmly in the driving seat.

     

    A big turning point six minutes in to the second half was the sending off of Killian McGriskin for a second bookable offence following a hefty challenge on Michael Plunkett.

     

    The Mayo Champions won out 1-11 to 0-09.

     

    Ballintubber will now march on to meet Corfin next Sunday in Tuam.

     

    Corofin defeated Tuam Stars 0-11 to 0-08 in the Galway County Final replay today.

     

    Elsewhere, Padraig Pearses had a 3-07 to 0-06 win over Tourlestrane to set up a Connacht SFC Semi-Final with Tir Chonnaill Gaels.

  • Corofin will be seeking a return to an All-Ireland Club Senior Football decider tomorrow when they clash with Munster Champions Nemo Rangers.

     

    Corofin have been the dominant force of late after lifting the last two All-Ireland club crowns and are chasing a fourth national title in six seasons.

     

    They overwhelmed Nemo Rangers in their last meeting in the 2018 decider with the Munster winners having last won out at this level in 2003.

     

    Throw-in is at 1.30pm in Cusack Park, Ennis.

    Throw-in at Pearse Stadium is at 3pm on Sunday.

  • Corofin's defence of their title remains on track.

    Micheál Lundy found the net for the Galway kingpins after just one minute of play.  

     

    Goalkeeper Bernard Power said the positive start was vital.

  • Corofin’s historic three in a row success has resulted in them sweeping up seven places on the AIB GAA Club Players’ Awards football team. 

     

    With a presence on every line of the field, the Galway and Connacht kingpins have now won 20 of these awards since it was first staged in 2018 and defender Liam Silke and sharp-shooter Martin Farragher have been honoured in each of the three years. 

     

    It is that sort of consistency which enabled Corofin to see off Kilcoo in an extra time thriller last January and become the first team ever to win a hat-trick of AIB GAA senior club football championship crowns.

    As a result, they dominate a selection that draws on players from five clubs from across the provinces after a hugely entertaining campaign. 

     

    The awards will be presented at a special banquet at Croke Park this Friday night. 

     

    In addition to the football and hurling teams being honoured, there will also be awards announced live on the night for the overall AIB GAA Club Footballer and Hurler of the Year. 

     

    The nominees for the footballer of the year are Kilcoo’s Darryl Branagan and Corofin duo Liam Silke and Ronan Steede.

  • 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 have won their third successive Connacht Senior Football Club Championship title.

     

    The defending All-Ireland champions won by 2-10 to 1-9 against Ballintubber at MacHale Park.

  • 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.
