Hard luck to UCC players Killian Burke, Conor Lehane, Tommy Wallace, Brian Hartnett and Cormac Walsh who were surprisingly defeated by NUIG last Thursday the Dangan by 0-21 v 0-19. Well done to the CIT lads Patrick White and Joe Loftus on their victory over St Patricks Dromcondra away by 1-19 1-14 thus qualifying them for the knockout stages.
