The big shock of round one of the 2011 Sigerson Cup came in Clontarf where pre-tournament favourites DIT were beaten by UL.

Paul Galvin did not make an appearance for the Dublin college. UUJ easily overcame Cork IT by 1-16 to 0-4 in Thursday’s first-round tie but Queen’s and St Mary’s were both knocked out of the competition.

Jordanstown led the Cork side 0-9 to 0-3 at half-time and went on to dominate the second half at Newcastle in west county Dublin.

Home advantage helped Maynooth beat Queen’s 0-11 to 0-9 as the Belfast side again made an early exit. Holders DCU clinched an easy 2-15 to 1-5 success over St Mary’s College.

UUJ’s victory earns them a quarter-final tie against Carlow IT who defeated Athlone IT 1-15 to 1-11 on Thursday.
