Match Previews
Col. Chríost Rí Cork v West Limerick
in Mallow at 1:30pm on January 23rd

Chríost Rí will be favourites in many people’s eyes to progress in this tie but they will be under no illusions of the task that awaits them as the amalgamated West Limerick outfit has been very impressive to date. Indeed a great win over Clonmel CBS underlined the credentials of the combined outfit to be a serious force in this competition. Chríost Rí have showed mixed form to date and were understandably disappointed at not winning both group games and will need to find a consistency in their play to progress.

West Limerick Schools results to date:
PS. Chorca Dhuibhne 1-13 West Limerick Schools 1-9
West Limerick Schools 1-9 Clonmel CBS 0-9
West Limerick Schools 4-13 North Clare Schools 0-4

Col. Chríost Rí results to date:
Col. Chríost Rí Cork 2-12 St. Flannan’s Ennis 2-6
Coláiste na Sceilge 1-8 Col. Chríost Rí Cork 1-8

St. Brendan’s Coll. Killarney v St.Flannan’s Coll. Ennis
in Rathkeale Club Pitch at 1:30pm on January 23rd

With their hurlers surprisingly failing to progress beyond the group stages in the Harty Cup, the footballers of St Flannan’s will have had ample time to prepare for this quarter clash with competition aristocrats St Brendan’s. The Clare school impressed in their victory over Coláiste na Sceilge but came up short against Col. Chríost Rí. St Brendan’s have been nothing but impressive emerging top of a group that contained Tralee CBS and St. Fachtna’s Skibbereen. Indeed their performances to date have led many to believe that the trophy may once again reside in the Sem.

St. Brendan’s results to date:
St. Brendan’s Killarney 1-15 Tralee CBS 1-5
DLS Skibbereen 1-8 St. Brendan’s Killarney 3-7

St. Flannan’s results to date:
Col. Chríost Rí Cork 2-12 St. Flannan’s Ennis 2-6
St. Flannan’s Ennis 2-10 Col. na Sceilge 1-6

DLS Macroom v St. Fachtna’s Skibbereen
in Ballineen at 1:30pm on January 23rd

Without a doubt the tie of the round will see these two west Cork rivals go head to head in what should be an excellent game. Indeed the two schools clashed earlier in the year in the Simcox Cup (Cork Colleges Senior ‘A’ Football) with the Macroom school emerging winners on a score of 1-16 to 1-9. Macroom went on to impressively account for Rochestown College in the final of the Simcox, who are also quarter-finalists. To date St Fachtna’s have shown enough form to suggest that they are capable of competing with any team in the competition and as they have shown in the past the challenge of the Macroom School will see them raise their game.

DLS Macroom results to date:
DLS Macroom 0-15 Killorglin I.S. 0-2
DLS Macroom 1-10 Rochestown Coll. 1-8

St. Fachtna’s results to date:
DLS Skibbereen 1-8 St. Brendan’s Killarney 3-7
Skibbereen 1-14 Tralee CBS 0-11

P.S. Chorca Dhuibhne v Rochestown Coll. Cork
in Killarney at 1:30pm on January 23rd

The final quarter final is a Kerry/Cork affair and sees P.S. Chorca Dhuibhne clash with Rochestown College. Last year was a landmark one for the West Kerry School as they captured all three ‘A’ grade football titles in Munster competitions and many expect the Corn Uí Mhuirí to return west again this year. Football in Rochestown College has undergone somewhat of a renaissance in recent years and they have emerged as genuine competition to the traditional powers in Munster.

P.S. Chorca Dhuibhne results to date:
PS. Chorca Dhuibhne 1-13 West Limerick Schools 1-9
PS. Chorca Dhuibhbe 4-22 North Clare Schools 0-4
Clonmel CBS 1-5 P.S. Chorca Dhuibhne 0-9

Rochestown College results to date:
DLS Macroom 1-10 Rochestown Coll. 1-8
Killorglin I.S. 2-5 Rochestown College 4-10
