On Thursday the Junior team Caherlistrane in Corofin for the Semi-Final of Division 4B. It was a great game and a fantastic performance from the Juniors, however the were unable to overcome Caherlistrane as the scoreline finished up Corofin 1-10 Caherlistrane 1-12, goal from Shane Canavan. Well done to the Junior Players and Management for a great League campaign, it has filled us with optimism ahead of the championship.

On Friday the Junior team played Claregalway in Knockdoemore for Round 2 of the Coen Cup. The ladies took their scores very well and ended the game with a 4-point cushion, Corofin 3-09 Claregalway 4-02.

Th U-17 Boys got their Galway ‘A’ North Championship underway with a game against Claregalway in Knockdoemore on Sunday morning. It was a very well contested game with both side taking some great scores, resulting in 5 goals scored in total between the two teams.

The U-12 Yellow team played their Division 4 Cup Semi-Final last Friday in Oranmore against Naomh Mhuire. It was a fantastic, spirited game to watch with both teams giving 100% to earn their place in the final. Unfortunately, Naomh Mhuire were able to find a few crucial score in the final quarter to finish the game as winners.

The U-14 girls travelled to Sligo for the Donal Healy Memorial Cup, hosted by St Mary’s Sligo. A panel of 35 girls took part to qualify from the group stages for a Semi-Final with eventual winners, Tuam-Cortoon. Míle buíochas to St Mary’s for hosting a fantastic event.
