Having claimed their place in the final due to wins over Sligo IT and SRC Newry the ITB Hurlers travelled to Galway last Friday for their first ever All-Ireland Colleges appearance. After a blistering start by both teams they went in level at the break with 1-07 apiece. UUC made the better start to the second half and raced into the lead with fifteen minutes remaining but points from Ronan Hayes and Man of the Match Damien Mc Gee tipped the tie into ITB’s favour and they remained there largely thanks to the bravery and commitment of the backs who were excellent throughout the game.

 

 

This title is the second All-Ireland title for the colleges GAA club in a week after the Men’s football team claimed the Trench Cup last Saturday in Athlone.

"Basically the course covers everything to do with digital and online media. I had it as a hobby in sixth year but when I came here I learned so much more."
