NUIG dominate as UL have four named on Electric Ireland Sigerson Cup TOTY

The Limerick college fell at the final hurdle to the Galway outfit.

The University of Limerick have had four players named to the Electric Ireland GAA Higher Education GAA Sigerson Cup Team of the Year after reaching the final of the competition.

Declan Brouder’s men fell just short in the final, losing their second ever final to NUIG in February. The champions have seven players selected.

UL’s Eoghan McLoughlin (Mayo), Sean Powter (Cork), Emmet McMahon (Clare) and David Clifford (Kerry) are named among the XV.

UL’s semi-final opponents DCU have a pair chosen, as do MTU who were beaten by NUIG in the other last four clash.

Last week the Fitzgibbon Cup TOTY was released where champions UL had six players chosen with Cian Lynch also selected for NUIG.

The player of the year in both the Sigerson and Fitzgibbon Cups will be revealed on April 4.
