Donegal star Michael Murphy was in stunning form as DCU overwhelmed Queen's University to set up a Sigerson Cup quarter-final clash with UCD.

Murphy claimed a magnificent nine-point haul, many of them spectacular efforts from play.

The Dubliners led by 0-7 to 0-6 at half-time, and pushed on with the wind in their backs in the second half. Dean Rock also weighed in with quality scores, and while James Kielt and Donal O'Hare kept the Belfast side in touch, they were unable to cope with the brilliance of All-Ireland winning skipper Murphy.
