Shall We Dance?
Dancing to live bands and social dancing is now as popular as it’s ever been with events taking place throughout the county each week. Locals who are interested in either learning to dance or improving their dancing skills will have an opportunity to do so with a free introductory Social Dancing class being offered at Corofin Community Centre on Wednesday night September 16th commencing at 7.30pm. There will be an opportunity to learn jive, quickstep, foxtrot and waltz. Should there be sufficient local interest in this new activity then classes are likely to continue there over the coming months.
CHAF, the Corofin Hall development committee will hold an important meeting at the Corofin Community Centre on this Thursday night September 3rd at 8.30pm for the purpose of organising preparations for the official re-opening of the building on Friday September 11th. All CHAF members and anyone else who is interested in helping out with the opening event is invited to attend this meeting.

Footballers In Semi Final
In spite of a one point defeat to Kilmihil in their final Intermediate football championship group game on a score of 0 -16 to 1 – 12, Corofin qualified for the semi-final of the competition proper thanks to Naomh Eoin defeating Liscannor in the other group game in their section. Corofin will now play near neighbours Kilfenora in the semi-final. Attention switches to the Intermediate hurling championship this week-end where Corofin take on Wolfe Tones of Shannon on Saturday next at the Eire Óg grounds in Ennis with a place in the semi-finals at stake.
While all those involved with Corofin Harps wish success to the Corofin Intermediate hurlers and footballers, a depleted Harps A continue to suffer in the opening games of the Clare Premier Soccer League and on Sunday last went down 5 -1 to table toppers Bridge United A at home. Harps B played a 1 – 1 draw with Tulla United B in the Division Three League Cup.
