Recently-crowned Connacht football champions Corofin will travel to London this weekend to play Fulham Irish in the All-Ireland quarter-final in what is a novel pairing for both teams.
They survived the loss of their inspirational full back Kevin Keane after just ten minutes, then lost their goalkeeper Patrick O’Malley to a black card with six minutes to go and conceded a penalty, which was converted and saw their lead pared back to three points, then two points and then one point as six agonising minutes of injury time seemed to take an age to tick by, but when the full time whistle was blown, the warriors from Westport were All Ireland intermediate champions.
