Corofin went to the top of the roll of honour for Connacht club triumphs with their eighth title since 1991. Last weekend's win over Castlebar Mitchels saw them pass out Roscommon’s Clann na nGael who have seven gongs from the 1980s.

Castlebar Mitchels renew acquaintances with Corofin in the Connachht Club final this Sunday in Tuam in what promises to be a mouth watering clash. Both teams know each other very well at this stage having crossed paths three times in the last number of years. Corofin needing extra-time last year to beat Castlebar in MacHale Park. Coincidently Mitchels have beaten the Galway kingpins twice in Tuam in what were rip-roaring encounters. Neither team seems to be at the level that they were a number of years ago, but they are still very evenly matched.
