IT Carlow Denied By Late UCC Surge In Fitzgibbon Cup Final

Cork college win their 40th title

No joy for Carlow IT as 14-man UCC came from behind to retain hurling's Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon Cup last night. 

Trailing by 4-points at the break, the Cork side also had Niall O'Leary sent off in the second half. 

Despite that, UCC ran out 18-points to 2-11 winners at the DCU Sportsground.

Kerry attacker Shane Conway was the man of the match scoring 9 points.

Liam Blanchfield and Seamus Casey scored goals in the first-half as DJ Carey's men led by 2-5 to 0-7 at half-time.

Laois All-Star nominee goalkeeper Enda Rowland scored two points for the losers
