Corofin have won the Connacht club title five times since 1991, and they reached another Connacht club final last Sunday afternoon when they recovered from a disastrous start to narrowly defeat Mayo champion’s Ballintubber at MacHale Park, Castlebar.
Corofin have been the most consistent club side at senior level in Galway football for the past 20 years. They have won the Frank Fox Cup on 10 occasions since 1991 and they will be hoping to continue that rich winning vein when they play Salthill, Mountbellew/Moylough or Tuam Stars in the 2011 final.

The replay of the county football quarter-final between Claregalway and Corofin took place on Saturday evening in Tuam Stadium with last year’s beaten finalists Corofin advancing on a 1-15 to 1-10 score-line.

The Galway senior footballers start their 2010 Connacht football championship campaign away to New York this weekend. The game is fixed for 4pm (local time) in Gaelic Park and will be refereed by Maurice Condon.
Corofin have been down this road a few times before, and they will know they face a stiff test against Antrim champions St Gall’s on Sunday at Parnell Park (2.30pm) if they are to advance to the All-Ireland club final on St Patrick’s Day.
The ultra competitive nature of the Galway SFC was emphasised once again last weekend as reigning county champions Killererin were dumped out of the title race by a highly impressive Cortoon Shamrocks outfit. It meant that for the third
