On Wednesday evening the U-19’s played the first round of their ‘A’ North League campaign as they hosted Monivea-Abbey in Corofin. The lads took a commanding lead in the first half, leading at the break on a scoreline of Corofin 2-09 Monivea-Abbey 0-3. The second half carried in the same vein with a superb team performance and the win was secured on a final scoreline of Corofin 3-13 Monivea-Abbey 1-8. Goals from Ronan Tyrell, Niall Burns and Cian Murphy.

On Thursday evening, 6:45pm, the Intermediates host Micheál Breathnach in Round 2 of Division 3A. On Friday evening, 7:00pm, the Juniors are away to Athenry for Round 2 of Division 4B. On Saturday evening, 5:00pm, the Seniors are away to Mountbellew-Moylough for Round 2 of Division 1A.

Best of luck to all teams playing this week and as always, your support at all games is appreciated.

On Sunday the Galway Seniors played Mayo in the Allianz Division 1 NFL Final in Croke Park. Any game against our neighbouring rivals is always a well fought contest and the final on Sunday was no exception. Padraic Joyce’s team played some great football but unfortunately Mayo finished out the game with the better rub of the green and a 3 point advantage at the final whistle, Galway 0-11 Mayo 0-14. Dylan McHugh started the game while Bernie Power and Ian Burke were named on the bench.

The Club wish to congratulate the Galway panel on a great League campaign that has provided much optimism and excitement ahead of the Connacht and All-Ireland Championships. We are particularly proud of our Club players who played their part in the Allianz League campaign; Bernie Power, Dylan McHugh and Ian Burke.


Last weekend saw the opening rounds of all League Divisions in Galway. On Thursday the Junior C team played the 1st round of Division 7 away to Claregalway. The girls battled well against a strong Claregalway team, while they kicked some great points through the game, they were not able to recover from a 4-goal-haul from Claregalway. Final score Corofin -10 Claregalway 4-5.

On Saturday evening the Senior’s hosted Moycullen in their opening round of Division 1. A shaky start saw Moycullen lead at half-time but a boal blitz in the second laf saw the girls close out the game as eventual winners. Final score Corofin 4-5 Moycullen 1-11. Goals from Leanne Coen (x3) and Amy Cooley.

On Sunday morning the Junior B’s got their Division 5 underway when they hosted Salthill-Knocknacarra in Belclare. It was a beautiful morning for football and the footballed matched the conditions. It was a closely contested game throughout but the girls pulled away in the second half with a flurry of superbly taken scores. Final scoreline Corofin 5-11 Salthill Knocknacarra 2-7. Goals from Louise Reilly (x2), Heather O’Leary and Rachel Burke (x2)

On Saturday evening U-12 Girls played their first game of the year with a challenge away to Monivea-Abbey. Thank you to Monivea-Abbey for hosting our 2 teams. The girls gave great team performances and we wish them the very best of luck in their League which starts later this month.
