Promotion on the line, ahead of InsureMyVan.ie Division 1 semi-finals this weekend.
IT Carlow is one of the semi-finalists who have the added incentive of promotion being on offer to each club that reaches the Division 1 playoff final.
The college takes on the EJ Sligo All-Stars on Saturday 26 March in Mercy College Sligo at 7.30 pm.
IT Carlow head coach Martin Conroy says:
“Sligo are having a great season this year. Winning the Northern Conference was another step forward for that great club”.
“They’ve brought in some serious talent and the Irish lads like Cian Lally and Oisín O’Reilly give them great depth”.
“It’ll be a very tough one for us on the road, but we look forward to a great game up there.” he added.
Shane O’Meara, EJ Sligo All-Stars head coach, said:
“I’m really looking forward to Saturday’s game. There’s an element of the unknown when playing cross-conference games”.
“We know Carlow will be physical and have had a great league campaign too, so it’s going to be a great battle”.
“There’s a lot at stake for both teams, but hopefully, the home draw will be enough to get us over the line.”
