Fitzgibbon Cup quarter-final previews
Fitzgibbon Cup quarter-finals. University of Limerick v University College Cork, UL (A Kelly, Galway), 2.30pm UCC were missing Cork pair Mark Coleman and Shane Kingston, as well as Waterford’s Tom Devine, for their last group game. Kingston will feature here, but there are question-marks over the other two given neither featured for their county during the opening two rounds of the league. UL fell at this very hurdle last year, despite having home advantage on that occasion against IT Carlow. Gary Kirby’s students will be determined to avoid a repeat.
University College Dublin v Dublin Institute of Technology, Belfield (P O’dwyer, Carlow), 7pm
DJ Foran has been in supreme form for UCD, tallying 1-20 across their two group games. James Maher and Darren Codd have been others to impress for JJ Doyle’s side. DIT did well to overcome WIT on their home patch but this evening’s opposition represents a step up again. They conceded 4-48 in their two group games and will need to considerably tighten up at back here.
