Masita GAA All Ireland Post Primary Schools Br Edmund Ignatius Cup Senior D Football Semi Final
Colaiste Ailigh, Letterkenny v Coliste na Trocaire Rathkeale, GAA Centre of Excellence Abbottstown 3.00pm
Wednesday is a massive day for the senior footballers of Colaiste na Trocaire in Rathkeale as they prepare to take on Colaiste Ailigh of Letterkenny in the semi-final of the Masita GAA All-Ireland Post Primary Schools Br Edmund Ignatius Cup semi-final.
Their manager, Killian Phair, originally from Cavan, has been teaching in Rathkeale since 2012 and says his team are really looking forward to the challenge.
We are a rural school in West Limerick with approximately 440 students, he says.
The football panel includes lads from Rathkeale GAA, Adare, Croagh-Kilfinny, Granagh-Ballingarry and St Kieran's.
We achieved a Munster Football and Hurling double in this 2017/18 academic year having won the Munster D Football and Munster D Hurling titles with 18 of the lads dual players.
We won the Limerick Post Primary Schools A county title in 2016/17 for the first time and retained it again this year in 2017/18.
This season they have maintained that tempo, as Phair explains.
We received a walkover in our first-round match and then we defeated Schull Community College in our quarter-final, the manager recalls.
In our Munster semi-final against Boherbue Comprehensive School we came back from seven points down at half time to win by five points in the end. In our Munster Final against Mean Scoil Castlegregory we were again seven points down at the start of the second half and won by four points in the end.
They will be hoping to retain that fighting spirit tomorrow in Abbotstown as they strive to make the final of this prestigious competition.
The footballers of Coliste Ailigh, Letterkenny, celebrate their ODoherty Cup final win against Ballybay Community College.
They face Coliste Ailigh, Letterkenny, who recently celebrated a first Ulster Championship success following their ODoherty Cup final win against Ballybay Community College.
Five points separated the sides at the final whistle after the Letterkenny boys finished with a late flourish. Late goals from Mikey Sweeney from the penalty spot and Sean McNulty sealed the win.
The Monaghan boys had stormed back into the game in the second period after Coliste Ailigh led by ten points early in the second half. Ballybay put the issue beyond doubt when Oisin ONeill tied up the game with a little over five minutes remaining.
We're a Gaelscoil in Letterkenny with a mixed student population of 270 students, explains Colaiste Ailing manager John Bosco Gallagher.
The school opened in 2000. We moved into a new school in 2013 with excellent playing facilities. This present team lost a county final at under 16 level two years ago but have really grown as a team since.

Meanwhile, in the semi-final of the Masita GAA All Ireland Post Primary Schools Michael Cusack Cup Senior C Hurling St Patrick's High School Keady face Clare opposition, Scariff CC.
St Patricks is an all-ability, co-educational school situated in the small town of Keady, eight miles south of Armagh city, says their manager Damien McConville.
There are approximately 1030 students enrolled at present coming from a wide catchment area in south Armagh, he added.
We participate in all four GAA codes and have won many titles over the past ten years in hurling ,camogie and Gaelic football and many of our past players are currently on the senior county hurling and camogie teams with some on the football team such as Niall Grimley, Gavin McParland and captain Rory Grugan.
Another past pupil Kelly Mallon features on the senior county ladies football team. Our current team is principally drawn from three hurling clubs, Keady Lamh Dearg, Middletown Na Fianna, and Derrynoose St Mochuas with one player from Cuchulainns, Armagh.
We are currently Casement Cup Ulster Senior B Hurling champions for the second year running and would dearly like to reach the final this year after losing out at semi-final stage in 2017.
