After a thrilling weekend of action in Cork for the National Cup semi-finals, attentions are quickly returning to both the men's and women's premier leagues.

Dublin Inter, who caused a major shock against Bord Gais Neptune, will be looking to build on their semi-final win when they play host to Templeogue tomorrow.

Inter's head coach Sarunas Cesnakauskas said: "We want to repeat how well we played last weekend, we need to keep improving every time.

"We are hoping to use this game against Templeogue to practise what we need to achieve next weekend. Everyone is focused on the National Cup game."

Neptune, on the other hand, will be looking to put last week's defeat behind them when they play SSE Renewable Moycullen.


Killester will be seeking a similar reaction to their semi-final defeat when they take on UCD Marian.

Sunday sees table-toppers C&S UCC Demons play fourth-placed UL Eagles, the league title holders.

The men's action will be rounded off when Belfast Star welcome DCU Saints to Methodist College.

In the Women's Premier League leaders Team Montenotte face a repeat of last weekend's semi-final as they take on DCU Mercy in Cork.
