At this stage, we’re all aware of how well the Wexford natives are doing in the Fitzgibbon Cup. In the Sigerson Cup, it seems to be a similar story…
Several Wexford natives will be involved this year’s Sigerson Cup final.
Kilanerin club-man and inter-county Wexford footballer Niall Hughes starred at midfield for the college team. Monageer-Boolavogue’s Cathal Walsh, who was lined out at wing back, also helped IT Carlow secure a historic win against Letterkenny IT this evening.
The Clongeen duo of Daryl Murphy and Adam Ryan are also on the IT Carlow panel.
This evening [Wednesday 22nd Jan], IT Carlow dramatically defeated Letterkenny IT in the Electric Ireland Sigerson Cup colleges semi-final. A 2-09 to 1-09 win, with a last gasp goal, sees IT Carlow advance into the final for the first time in their history.
Meanwhile in the other semi-final, DCU defeated UCD in a clash of the two Dublin colleges.
Next week [Wed 29 Jan], IT Carlow will play DCU at 7:30, with a venue still to be confirmed.
