IT Carlow had a very strong season last year with both the hurlers and footballers getting to the finals.
Their footballers got to their very first Sigerson Cup final against DCU however the Dublin side won the game 0-14 to 0-07.
Manager Pat Critchley says the black cards hurt them on the night.
The hurlers suffered a single point defeat in the Fitzgibbon Cup final.
DJ Carey’s men led by four points and half time and UCC were reduced to 14 men in the second half but the Cork based students turned it around to win by 0-18 to 2-11.
