Mary Immaculate College of Limerick face Dublin Insititute of Technology in the Fitzgibbon Cup quarter-final, at Parnell’s GAA Club in Coolock, this Tuesday at 2pm.
It is a huge day in Mary I’s history as they look to overcome their Dublin opponents in their first-ever Fitzgibbon Cup quarter-final.
DIT produced a professional performance to overcome St Patrick’s Mater-Dei in their last game and looked very impressive when dismantling University of Limerick. The well-organised Dublin outfit qualified as group winners and will be confident of beating Mary I, as the Limerick side enter uncharted waters in the form of a Fitzgibbon Cup quarter-final.
Mary I come into the match on the back of an inspiring 2-14 to 1-8 win over Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology. It was a huge win for Eamonn Cregan’s side and they will no doubt be ready for this battle with DIT. Cregan’s side have been impressive this year, and will believe they can get one over on DIT this Tuesday.
Neither team have any major injury worries coming into the match.
Players to Watch
David Treacy is undoubtedly the star player on show for DIT, having performed remarkably well in their win over St. Patricks Mater-Dei, scoring eight points. Kilkenny’s Michael Moloney and Dublin star Liam Rushe will pose serious threats in attack, and Mary I will have to stop the supply into the forwards if they are to cone away with a win.
Mary I have attacking threats of their own and Cork inter-county player Luke O’ Farrell poses a constant threat. His movement off the ball and clinical finishing will keep the DIT defenders on their toes all afternoon. If John Conlon and Declan Hannon receive the necessary supply of quick-ball, then I see no reason why Mary I’s potent forward line can lead them to victory.
