Galway champs face Cortoon
17 February 2017
The Corofin team huddle before their Connacht club SFC final victory over St Brigid's at Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada, Carrick-on-Shannon.
Defending champions Corofin will face Cortoon Shamrocks in the opening round of the 2017 Galway senior football championship.

The meeting with Cortoon Shamrocks is a repeat of the 2008 SFC final, which Corofin won on a scoreline of 0-08 to 0-05.
Last year’s beaten finalists Salthill/Knocknacarra will meet their old rivals Milltown, while other notable ties include Tuam Stars taking on Killannin and Annaghadown’s meeting with Killererin.
The full draw is as follows: St Michael’s v. Naomh Ann/Leitir Mor; Monivea – Abbeyknockmoy v. Kilconly; Salthill/Knocknacarra v. Milltown; Moycullen v. Michael Breathnach; Annaghdown v. Killererin; Caltra v. St James; Killannin v. Tuam Stars; Caherlistrane v. Barna; Cortoon Shamrocks v. Corofin; Mountbellew/Moylough v. An Cheathru Rua.
