Galway senior club champions Corofin go into Sundays Connacht Semi Final against Glencar/Manorhamilton as favourites to make it to another Connacht final which would be their third in 4 years. A team with vast experience are being tipped to make it out of Connacht once again and into the All Ireland semi final. We cast our minds back to last year when Corofin lost to Kilmacud Crokes (the eventual All Ireland Champions) in Mullingar in the All Ireland Semi Final.
Glencar are after completing the double in Leitrim after winning the Division 1 league final by 5 points. The Leitrim champions who over came Carrigallan in the county final feel they have every chance of making it out of this game and into a Connacht final. They will look towards sharpshootters James Clancy & Adrian Croal to be the inspiration in what will be a tricky assignment.
Corofin however come into Sundays game with some difficulties, the North Galway side who overcame Mountbellew/Moylough in the final will be without former All-Star Kieran Fitzerarld who will be a massive loss and there is doubts over Alan O’Donavan who came off injured in the county final. But with players such as the Burkes, Comer & a strong midfield to guide them through the match.
So all roads lead to Tuam Stadium on Sunday where Corofin take on the Leitrim Champions and the winners will be up against Mayo Champions Charestown and Roscommon champions Castlerea St.Kevins in the final.
Prediction : Corofin, should have enough to overcome the Leitrim Champions even without two key players.
