New York to face Corofin in preparation for Leitrim tie

New York will play All-Ireland club champions Corofin in a challenge match as part of their preparations for the Connacht Championship quarter-final against Leitrim.

The Exiles have confirmed the match against the Galway side for Thursday, April 26, at Gaelic Park in The Bronx.

New York face Leitrim at the same venue on Sunday, May 6.

Connacht champions Corofin comprehensively beat Cork’s Nemo Rangers in the All-Ireland club final in Croke Park on St Patrick’s Day.

Last year New York played Donegal in a challenge match in the States, ahead of their game against Sligo in the championship.
