Athlone IT to meet Cork IT in Sigerson Cup

Action from Athlone IT's recent Sigerson Cup victory over IT Carlow. Athlone IT now meet Cork IT in the quarter-finals next Thursday.

ATHLONE Institute of Technology will meet Cork IT in the quarter-finals of the 2013 Irish Daily Mail Sigerson Cup.

The fixture is scheduled to take place on Athlone IT's campus grounds on Thursday, February 14 but a throw-in time has yet to be confirmed.

Cork IT ensured safe passage into the quarter-finals with a 1-12 to 0-7 win over GMIT on Tuesday, with Cork senior star Ciaran Sheehan scoring a crucial 1-4.

Sheehan will no doubt be Athlone's biggest concern ahead of the quarter-final, after which the winner will progress to the prestigious 'Finals Weekend', to be hosted by Athlone IT on February 22 and 23. Cork IT has won the tournament reccently, having beaten Dublin IT in the 2009 final.

Athlone IT, managed by Tubberclair boss Martin McCabe, secured their place in the last-eight with a recent victory over IT Carlow. The current holders of the Sigerson Cup are Dublin City University, who were captained by Westmeath man Kieran Gavin, who became the first ever Lake County player to captain a Sigerson-winning team.
