The Ulster champions now await the winners of De la Salle (Waterford) and St Benildus (Dublin), who meet in the other semi-final in Arklow tomorrow.

Summerhill rallied after the early concession, but luck deserted them, with Daniel Talbott making a last-ditch challenge at the death to save St Pat's.
