UCC retain their Fitzgibbon Cup crown

UCC retained their Fitzgibbon Cup crown today witha deserved five point win over Mary Immaculate College at Pearse Park, Galway.

Conor Lehane was the star of the show with a final tally of 1-9 as UCC won out by 2-17 to  2-12.

Leading by 0-9 to 0-7 at the break, goals from Conor Lehane and Séamus Harnedy in the second half settled the game in the Leesiders’ favour.

Mary I received a massive boost before the game when Declan Hannon was cleared following the red card he received in the semi-final win over WIT yesterday but they never looked like winning and their fairytale story came to a disappointing end.
