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.
Following Corofin’s facile 4-14 to 2-6 demolition of St. Mary’s (Sligo) last weekend at Markievicz Park, and Castlebar Mitchels impressive 3-8 to 0-13 victory over Clann na nGael at Hyde Park, the sides will meet in the Connacht club senior final in Tuam Stadium (2pm) on November 22.
Corofin made short work of Mountbellew/Moylough last Sunday in the county senior final to confirm, without doubt, they are the best team in the county, again.
When I played with the Corofin seniors from 1989 until 2004, we had a fairly good team, with Michael and Aidan Donnellan, Martin McNamara, Trevor Burke, Eddie Steede, Gerry Burke and Derek Reilly as good as any club player in the country.
The current Corofin side’s quest to become the first panel in the club’s history to win three-in-a-row county senior titles continued last Sunday when they defeated Cortoon Shamrocks by 2-11 to 0-7 in the county semi-final at Tuam Stadium.
Salthill/Knocknacarra were too strong for Killanin last weekend at Pearse Stadium, qualifying for this year's county semi-final by 0-12 to 1-6.
