  • Back-to-back All-Ireland Club Football champions Corofin are retaining their management team for the coming season.

    Kevin O'Brien's agreed to stay in charge of the Galway side as they bid for three successive national crowns.

    David Morris, Ger Keane, Terry Paine, David Comer, Joe Canney and Michael Comer will stay on board as backroom team.

     

     

  • 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.

  • The disparity in what the GAA gives back per player in each county from its ticket sales in the National Leagues and All Ireland Championship matches, is unfair according to a Mayo Senator.

    Erris based Sinn Fein Senator Rose Conway-Walsh has questioned the GAA president on how and why the decision to increase ticket prices for this year’s Leagues and All-Ireland matches was reached.

    The Senator is concerned that new GAA pricing model could prevent loyal supporters from attending matches, particularly families where a number of tickets need to be purchased.

    She was speaking at a special address to the Seanad by Mr. John Horan, where she raised what she sees as the inequity in prices paid back to clubs per player from ticket sales.

  • Roscommon's Donie Smith has been hit with a proposed one match ban over an incident in last Saturday's Allianz League Division 1 game between Mayo and Roscommon according to the Irish Daily Star. 

    Smith's hand appeared to have made contact with Keith Higgins' eye area. 

    It is unclear if Roscommon will accept the ban - which would rule Smith out of Roscommon's clash with Monaghan on Sunday. 

    The option of a longer ban was open to the disciplinary body but Smith has been hit with a Category Three offence of behaving in any way which is dangerous to an opponent, which carries a minimum one-match ban. 

     

  • Elvery's MacHale Park in Castlebar will play host to two Connacht football championship matches this evening.

    The new Connacht Minor Football championship will be run on a round-robin basis this year, meaning the competing counties will be guaranteed at least four games.

    A number of today's Allianz Football League ties have fallen victim to the weather, with more potentially to follow.

    Pearse Stadium passed a pitch inspection this morning so both Mayo & Galway in the Lidl Ladies National Football League and the Allianz Football League will go ahead as planned.

    The ladies game starts at noon while 2pm is the start time for the round 3 clash in the Allianz league game.

    Elsewhere in division one, Monaghan and Kerry is off while Kildare and Tyrone still goes ahead.

    In Division 2 the meetings of Clare and Tipperary, and Roscommon and Down, are both going ahead at present.

    As it stands Cork's game with Louth goes ahead.

    The rescheduled Division 2 clash of Cavan and Meath has again been called off, as well as the Division 3 meeting of Sligo and Fermanagh.

    Elsewhere in Division 3 Armagh face Longford, Derry take on Offaly and Wexford host Westmeath.

    While in Division 4 Antrim take on Wicklow and London face Limerick.

    That game in Ruislip throws in at 1pm, with all the other games underway at 2pm.

    Elsewhere, the Roscommon v Meath Ladies National Football League game has been postponed.
