Presentation Tuam face Loreto College, Cavan in the All-Ireland Senior A semi-final at 12pm today (Friday). The Galway side beat Convent of Mercy, Roscommon in January’s Connacht Final by 4-19 to 2-2 thanks to goals from Aoife O’Rourke, Amy Coen, Niamh Daly and Amy O’Donovan.
Tuam haven’t won this competition since 2003 but did contest the Junior B decider two years ago. However, they will be up against it against an improving Loreto outfit looking to make their mark. The game had originally been scheduled for last Thursday before the bad weather.
Loreto Cavan have no national honours to their name but were impressive in their 5-10 to 0-8 victory over Our Lady’s, Castleblayney in the Ulster Final. And they did play in the 2017 Junior A final going down to John The Baptist, Limerick.
Colaiste Bhaile Chlair will be action in the Westmeath venue on Monday (March 12th) when they take on St. Catherine’s College, Armagh at 12pm. Claregalway were Junior C winners 12 months ago and will be hoping this talented group can continue their winning ways.
And on Thursday (15th March) will be the Senior B semi-final as Glenamaddy Community School meet Our Lady and St. Patrick’s College from Knock in Belfast. Glenamaddy have a rich history in the schools circuit having won the 2015 Senior A title, the Junior A crown in 2013 and this competition four years ago.
