Congrats Coláiste Eoin.
Coláiste Eoin qualified for the Leinster Colleges Senior Hurling Final by defeating Kilkenny CBS yesterday. This is an outstanding achievement as the last time a Dublin school contested the final was in 1956 when St. Josephs Fairview were runners up. Dublin Combined Colleges won in 2001 and 2008 and Dublin North were winners last year but Colaiste Eoin have done it all on their own. They await the winners of Wednesday’s semi final between Dublin North and St. Kierans College. Colaiste Eoin are also in the senior football quarter finals. Well done to all in that wonderful school.
