St Flannan’s eye Harty final clash with old foes St Colman’s

ARCH rivals St Flannan’s and St Colman’s are set to meet in the Harty Cup final following the quarter-final draw in Mallow.

Holders Flannan’s meet Midleton CBS, a draw that pleased team official Con Woods: “I’m happy with the draw but won’t be taking any chances against Midleton. Should we win and Shannon Schools defeat Kilmallock, it would set up an all-Clare semi-final and that would be something to look forward to,” he said.

Colman’s drew difficult opponents in St Joseph’s, Borrisoleigh, while the all-Tipperary clash of Cashel CS and Thurles CBS should also be a cracker.

Corn Uí Mhuirí holders Coláiste Chriost Rí drew Limerick City Colleges in the quarter-final. Victory would set up an all-Cork city semi-final should Spioraid Naoimh defeat Dingle CBS in their quarter-final.

As a result of a motion passed at the All-Ireland Colleges AGM, the Munster and Leinster runners-up will compete in the Croke Cup (All-Ireland championship).

Draws: quarter-final: A - Connacht winners v Leinster runners-up on March 13; Semi-finals: A winners v Munster winners; Leinster winners v Munster runners-up, on April 9. All-Ireland final on April 30.

The meeting agreed to donate proceedings from the quarter-finals to the GOAL Asian relief charity. Secretary Michael Forestal told the meeting that the Hurling Development Committee has ordered all players 18 years and under to wear helmets with face visors for games and training.

Development Officer Tom Collum said the Munster Council will shortly fund a new certified coaching course for teachers.

Harty Cup draw: A - Cashel CS v Thurles CBS; B - St Colman’s v St Joseph’s; C - St Flannan’s v Midleton CBS; D - Shannon Schools v Kilmallock. Semi-finals: A v B; C v D. Quarter-finals January 26; Semi-finals February 13. Final March 13.

Corn Uí Mhuirí: A - St Brendan’s v ISK; B - St Fachtna’s v St Flannan’s; C - CC Ri v Limerick City Colleges; D - CSN v Dingle CBS, February 2. Semi-finals: A v B; C v D on February 27. Final March 20.
