Corofin’s path to senior redemption received a timely validation after exacting revenge on Kildysart to cement their place in the Intermediate Football Final in Shanahan McNamara Memorial Park, Doonbeg on Sunday afternoon.
Smith O’Briens have qualified for their fourth Clare IHC semi-final in six years after clawing their way back to force extra time and send Corofin crashing out of the competition.
A strong opening ten minutes to the second half which yielded 2-3 without reply sent Corofin on the road to victory in this intermediate football championship play off on Sunday evening.

Kildysart, St Josephs Doora/Barefield and Shannon Gaels have qualified for the semi-finals of the intermediate football championship following their second round victories over O’Currys, Michael Cusacks and Kilfenora respectively at the weekend.
