As the Sigerson Cup moves into the second round, the college’s footballers are at home from 7.30pm to Sligo IT.
They’ll be looking for a bounce-back victory having surrendered a late lead to Letterkenny IT last week.
With four minutes left to play, IT Carlow held a 1-10 to 0-09 lead but a Keelan McGroddy goal and scores from Jason McGee and Rory O’Donnell edged the game 1-13 to 1-11 in favour of the Donegal side. Sligo were comprehensively beaten last week 4-15 to 0-07 by UL.
Pat Critchley’s men will have their work cut out for them on the home campus this evening but last weekend’s narrow defeat should spur them on for a win.
At the slightly earlier time of 7pm, DJ Carey’s college hurlers get their 2022 Fitzgibbon Cup started away to Waterford IT at the WIT Arena.
Mary I get the ball rolling this afternoon against UCC at 2pm while NUI Maynooth take on DCU from 7pm. The late game of this evening’s first-round action sees NUI Galway travel to Dublin to take on UCD at 7.45pm.
IT Carlow will be hosting the finals of both competitions next month.
