UL paired with reigning champions University of Galway in Sigerson Cup quarter-final

The game is a repeat of last year’s final where the Galway side were crowned champions for the first time since 2003.

UL and the University of Galway will renew acquaintances in the Sigerson Cup as they have been drawn together for next week’s quarter-finals.

These sides were the finalists in 2022 where NUIG ended a near 20-year wait for honours to prolong UL’s search for a maiden title.

The reigning champions will have home advantage for next Tuesday’s tie which throws in at 7pm. The quarter-final draw sees DCU Dochas Eireann taking on MTU Cork, TU Dublin meeting UCD and St Mary’s facing UCC.

The University of Limerick booked their place in the quarters with a comprehensive win over SETU Carlow on Tuesday evening as they ran out 4-10 to 1-4 winners in Castletroy. Ciaran Downes (2), Aaron Griffin and Sean McDonnell had goals for the Limerick outfit.

It was an impressive response from Declan Brouder’s men who were shocked at home by TU Dublin the previous week, missing out on their first opportunity for a quarter-final place.

But, they will face one of the form teams in the competition in Galway who have won both of their games thus far. They beat Maynooth University 3-10 to 1-6 in the opening round before a 2-11 to 1-6 victory against UCD secured their last eight berth.

Last year’s success brought NUIG (University of Galway) to 23 titles, level with UCC in the roll of honour. UCD lead the way with 34 while UL have been beaten in both of their final appearances in 2022 and 1997.
