Rescheduled All Ireland Schools League Finals tip off next week
March 09, 2018
The two days of All Ireland Schools League finals, which had to be rescheduled due to adverse weather conditions last week, will now take place at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght next week.
The finals will tip off on Monday, March 12th and Thursday, March 15th. Once more, teams from across the country will be competing for top honours at Under 16 and Under 19 levels.
The Under 16 A games are set to just some of the big games to watch, with Kerry’s Scoil Phobail Sliabh Luachra of Rathmore facing off against Cork rivals Scoil Mhuire Gan Smal Blarney in the Boys’ final at 2pm on Monday. Both teams will be hoping to make their mark on a competition that has been dominated by St Malachy’s of Belfast in recent years.
In the Under 16 A girls final meanwhile, Scoil Chriost Ri of Portlaoise will be hoping to make it a double of wins on Thursday, as they scooped a back-to-back Under 16 Cup trophy in January and will be hoping to add more silverware to the cabinet. They face a very tough battle though as they face reigning league champions, Presentation Secondary School of Castleisland.
