Carna-Caiseal produced a terrific performance last weekend to defeat the current county champions Salthill/Knocknacarra at Pearse stadium by 2-6 to 0-11.
Salthill-Knocknacarra were far too strong for a disjointed looking Killererin in the county senior semi-final last Sunday at Tuam Stadium, winning comprehensively on a scoreline of 3-10 to 0-10.
There is a gush of expectation and excitement in Galway football circles this week in anticipation of a first county final between Tuam Stars and Corofin for 16 years.
Galway reached the All-Ireland football final for the first time in 1919, when they were beaten by Kildare by 2 – 5 to 0 – 1. In 1922 they were beaten by Dublin by 6 points to 4. In 1925 they won it for the first time, beating Cavan by 3 – 2 to 1 - 2. In 1928, the Sam Maguire Trophy was presented to the GAA, and ever since, it has been the dream of every county in Ireland to hold it aloft in Croke Park on the third Sunday in September.
Thankfully there are very many funny and humorous people in Galway GAA circles. And sometimes that wit can pass down the gene pool to the younger generation.
County final day and all the baggage that comes with it. Corofin just know how to deal with the heavy load. It is why their recent history is laced with success and silverware. If Corofin want to win a county title they usually do regardless of the competitors’ list.
A decade on and the passion for the game burns as bright as ever in Corofin. It is hard to fathom that it is 10 and a half years since Ray Silke climbed the Hogan Stand steps breathing life back into Galway football as Corofin were crowned All Ireland club kings on a nippy St Patrick’s afternoon in Drumcondra.
It was difficult to believe how poor Salthill were last Sunday. They looked extremely disjointed and never really got into their stride.
