Corofin to meet Charlestown in Connacht final

Corofin reached another Connacht senior football final with an impressive and professional victory over Glencar/Manorhamilton last Sunday in Tuam Stadium on a score-line of 2-13 to 0-9.

The Galway county champions struggled to find their rhythm in the first half, but they found their groove in the second period. After a Kieran Comer goal, they never looked likely to be caught by a brave but limited challenge from the Leitrim champions.

The positive for Ger Keane and his management team was that both young wing-forwards Michael Farragher and Ronan Steede impressed, offering height, mobility, work-rate and scoring power from numbers 10 and 12. Steede hit two lovely points and Farragher ended with 1-02 after his name.

Corofin have struggled in the scoring department over the past few seasons and a few young forwards arriving on the scene is a positive development for the club.

Joe Canney and Kieran Comer also caught the eye up front and Comer’s improving form and fitness offers the team a good target man on the edge of the square.

County player Gary Sice also looked more assured and at home in his number seven jersey at wing-back rather than with a higher digit on his back. Likewise, the livewire Kieran McGrath who hit a spectacular point on the over-lap when relocated to corner backs, is a better attacking defender than outright attacker.

Corofin will face the Mayo champions Charlestown who defeated Castlerea 1-09 to 0-11 after extra-time in a terrific game in the final on November 22.
