All the latest news from Connacht



v Carnacon


A super week of Ladies football will come to a
end next Sunday when Corofin and Carnacon face
up for the Connacht Senior Club title in Corofin
at 2.00pm. This fine week started last Sunday
when Grainne Mhaols Galway defeated Geevagh Sligo
on a score line of 4-5 to 2-9. This game was a
thrilling close encounter with Lisa Cohill’s leadership
qualities helped inspire her team mates and in
doing so earned her the player of the match and
the AIB Junior Connacht club title. They now must
travel to Kerry for the Semi final on November
7th to play Munster Champions Anneydorney.

Meanwhile Aughawillian, Leitrim took on St Brigid’s
of Roscommon in their home ground. This was a
game that swayed and turned like a windy road
both side’s had numerous chances but blasted wide.
St Brigid’s looked to be in control up until the
45th minute but Aughawillian’s Quinn sisters worked
tirelessly in all areas of the field and brought
the teams on level par but a minute to go St Brigid’s
hit the back of the Aughawillian net. Final score
to Capture the 2004 Intermediate Connacht club
title Aughawillian 3-4 St Brigids 2-9. An appreciative
excited Orla Gavin recived the player of the match.

To round off a great week of Ladies Football the
AIB senior club title is to be decided in Corofin
on Sunday next 24th of October. Carnacon the supreme
team of Connacht Club over the past five years
will be favourites going into this match. Led
by Cora Staunton, Claire Egan, McGing girls and
many more County talents who will be pumping pressure
on a Corofin team hamperd with injuries but never
the less an abundance of talent.

Corofin have nine County panellists and are sure
to lift the game to Carnacon especially on Home
ground. On the day good local support is expected.
Weather permitting this will be a classic.

In 2003 Corofin had Carnacon on the rack in their
home ground of Clougher but a superb individual
display by Cora Staunton saw them capture the
Title by a single point. Corofin has never won
the Connacht senior club title and will do all
possible to create their own bit of History.
