Congratulations to the Corofin U-14 footballers - Clare Féile Champions for 2016.

The Clare Féile was ran off on Sunday, April 10th, with Corofin up against Doora-Barefield and The Banner in their qualifier group. Corofin had home advantage for these 2 games and they defeated Doora-Barefield in their opening game by 3-3 to 2-5, despite been 8 points in arrears at one stage in the second half. In their second game, Corofin got the better of The Banner by 2-3 to 0-2, which qualified them for the Clare Féile Final, where they would meet St. Breckans who emerged victorious from the other qualifier group.
