Eight teams remain in the Electric Ireland Sigerson Cup with four attractive quarter-final clashes scheduled for Wednesday.
Two of the competitions bluebloods, University of Galway and UCD meet in Dangan on Wednesday evening.
Both panels are liberally sprinkled with accomplished inter-county players so this promises to be a particularly lively match.
University of Galway, managed by Maurice Sheridan, will be looking to Mayo’s Tommy Conroy and Ryan O’Donoghue for attacking inspiration.
UCD, with John Divilly in charge, include Rory Brickenden, Sam Callinan, and Daire Cregg in a star studded panel.
UL host DCU Dóchas Éireann in Limerick.
Beaten finalists last year, UL’s panel includes Clare’s Ciarán Downes and Leitrim’s Paul Keaney.
DCU Dóchas Éireann, who have won the Sigerson five times, will be prompted by the in form Mathew Costello and Conor Corbett.
Maynooth’s tussle with Queens could go the distance too.
Darragh Kirwan continues to impress for club, college, and county, while Eoghan Frayne was prominent in Meath’s Allianz Football League opener against Fermanagh.
It has been an encouraging campaign so far for Queens with Luke Donnelly and Matthew Murnaghan key performers.
TU Dublin have been hugely impressive in January with Jack Flynn and Killian McGinnis landing crucial scores.
Another demanding match in the capital awaits for TU Dublin against Ulster University, who have talented forwards in the Canavan brothers and Conor Cush.
