All year people have been making Corofin the hottest of favourites to win an historic fifth county title in a row and their scoring returns of 2-15, 2-17, 1-18, and 4-13 in their win over Moycullen two weeks ago, show the attacking prowess they have in championship football.

Kilkenny ladies are back in football action on Sunday next when they travel to Clones to take on a very strong Fermanagh side in round 3 of the TG4 All-Ireland series. The game is being played as the opener to the Ulster final mens’ replay between Armagh and Fermanagh.
The wearing of county jerseys has become extremely fashionable in recent times. It affords the wearer an opportunity to advertise his or her identity in a subtle way that often leads to a conversation about the chances of their team in an upcoming championship encounter. I was descending Croagh Patrick last Thursday morning when I noticed a family bedecked in their county colours. This Fermanagh family was heading for the summit to plant their county colours ahead of the Ulster final replay between Fermanagh and Armagh. Having stopped briefly to engage with them and to offer my best wishes I recognised a striking resemblance of the father of this particular family to that of Marty McGrath, the towering Fermanagh midfielder. He excitedly told me that he was indeed Marty’s brother and, as he would normally travel to climb on Reek Sunday, the clash of fixtures left him with no option but to travel west a few days in advance.
