Club

Corinthians or Galway Corinthians Rugby Football Club was founded in the 1932/33 season and as such celebrated its seventy fifth anniversary in the season 2007/08.

The founding members of the club were a group of young lads, mostly then immediate and recent past pupils of St. Josephs, the Bish together with some of their teachers, most notably Harry Warner who served as first President of the club and was also for many years secretary of the Galway Chamber of Commerce (& Industry). The first Secretary of the club Bernie O’Connell from Woodquay only passed away in June 2006.

Success was immediate, with the club winning the Connacht Senior Cup in its inaugural year in March 1933. Corinthians retained the cup the following year, 1934. The Connacht Senior Cup, like the other provincial cups, was at that time the major event of the rugby season. There had been an All Ireland competition for the Bateman Cup but it had been discontinued some ten years earlier.
