25 February 2013
Four thrilling Irish Universities Collingwood Cup games took place at the excellent University of Ulster Jordanstown today (Monday 25th February). UCC and DCU needed extra time to beat NUI Galway and Magee College, while Queens beat Trinity 1-0 in a very tight game.
Two goals from Jamie Airey meant that NUI Maynooth got revenge for their CUFL league defeat, beating UL 3-1. This game was a repeat of last year's Farquhar Cup Final which Maynooth also won.
Tuesday fixtures see a repeat of last year's final when Noel O'Connor's Mary I try to dethrone favourites UCD, and hosts UUJ take on last year's surprise packets Royal College of Surgeons. The four winners from round one also play with a very interesting game between NUI Maynooth and CUFL Finalists DCU, with 2011 winners UCC playing Queens.
