Senior Cup Semi-Final Preview

Castletroy College Vs Crescent Comprehensive

What is anticipated to be a highly contested affair the two Limerick rivals will be battling it out for a place in the final against one of their Cork counter-parts. Comp will be hoping to copy the Junior Side who were emphatic victors over the Trojans in their Quarter Final.

The Castletroy team on the otherhand will hope to end their drought of a Senior Cup final having only appeared in one since taking part in the competition. Castletroy, although highly rated at the beginning of the competition, have yet to face strong opposition and this may work in Comp’s favour even after losing to a strong CBC side in the first round but getting through the second and then beating reigning champs Rockwell in the Quarter Final.

Verdict: Castletroy by 5

Presentation Brothers College Vs Christian Brothers College

Another hugely contested derby set to take place in Irish Independent Park. The two most decorated Senior Cup sides in history face off for a place in a final against one of their Limerick rivals.

Both had very different journeys to the semi-final. PBC cruised to victory over Clements and Bandon while CBC had to defeat a very good Comp side and won in a battle against a strong Ard Scoil side. All I can say is it’s gonna be fantastic!

Verdict: CBC by 3.
