North-West Regional College in Under-18 Final
The North West Regional College’s men’s Gaelic football team have reached the final of the All- Ireland Further Education Championship.
The local college, which won the same title in 2009, have made it to this year’s showpiece by defeating Cork FE 1-16 to 2-6 in the quarter- final, and Colaiste Ide (Dublin) 1-12 to 1-11 in the semi- final.
Opposition in the early awaited Championship Final will be Cavan IT, and the match will be played as part of the overall Sigerson weekend at University College Dublin (UCD) under lights this afternoon with a 5.00 p.m. throw-in.
This success follows the launch earlier in the year of the College’s GAA Academy, a first for the north west region which combines full-time education with a practical skills training package, allowing College students to play the sport they love to a high standard, whilst gaining academic or vocational qualifications. It is aimed at embracing the development of sporting, leadership, personal and social skills to prepare College students for a future in coaching or playing Gaelic sports.
The students have also reached the quarter-final of the All-Ireland League competition after finishing top of their qualifying section.
