Corofin favourites to beat Killarney Crokes

There will be a lot of neutrals at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick this Saturday at 4pm for the highly anticipated All-Ireland senior club football semi-final between Galway and Connacht champions Corofin, and the Kerry and Munster champions Killarney Crokes.

What ifs and a game to be won

Life in general and sport in particular are all about “what ifs”. In the run-up to Mayo's crucial league game against Donegal on Sunday, I can't help but think of another what if. What if Corofin had beaten Castlebar Mitchels last November in the Connacht club final, how would Stephen Rochford have coped with the pressures of managing two high profile teams; with great difficulty, I think is the answer. Despite being robbed of the services of the Castlebar contingent for the first five rounds of the league, because of their run to the All-Ireland club final, the Mitchels have done Mayo football a huge favour in beating Corofin and allowing Rochford to concentrate on matters Mayo. Try to imagine what it would have been like managing both teams; virtually impossible. You would probably cope during the week where you'd have training with both teams on alternative nights but it's the weekends that would constitute the big problem.
