GAELIC GAMES ROUND-UP
Colaiste Cois Life ready to rock ’n’ roll in decider after tough semi
COLAISTE Cois Life progressed to the final of the Dublin Schools Junior ‘C’ Football Championship courtesy of a 5-13 to 4-8 victory over Colaiste Choilm in Swords last Thursday.
They will now face Blackrock College in the upcoming showpiece encounter – the Williamstown outfit having accounted for Cois Life’s near neighbours Lucan Community College on April 11. The Gaelscoil (who include Dublin senior hurler Liam Rushe amongst their past pupils) didn’t always have it their own way, but ultimately had too much for Colaiste Choilm.
Elsewhere, Terenure College edged past the challenge of Colaiste Eoin on Tuesday to book their spot in the Tom Quinlan Cup semi-final. At the end of an enthralling affair, they held out for a 5-26 to 6-19 success.
However, there was disappointment for ‘Nure’s U14 hurlers as they suffered a 3-4 to 0-9 reversal at the hands of Castleknock CC in Russell Park yesterday. Castleknock will have to wait before discovering their Dublin Schools Juvenile ‘B’ final opponents, after Templeogue College and St Mac Dara’s CC played out a thrilling draw at Tymon Park (5-6 apiece).
Despite a gallant effort at Eire Og, Carlow yesterday, Colaiste Eoin were defeated by St Peter’s, Wexford on a scoreline of 4-16 to 1-14 in the Leinster Schools Juvenile ‘A’ Hurling quarter-final.
