DCU manager Paddy Christie has cited the Sigerson final victory against IT Carlow one of joy and relief as DCU claimed their fifth Sigerson championship with a seven-point win at the DCU Sportsgrounds.
DCU full-back Brendan McCole insists that nothing will come easy for DCU as they open their Sigerson Cup campaign at home to An Garda College tomorrow afternoon in St Clare’s.
“I have had a great 3 years playing for DCU. We won the League at the end of 2015 which was such a good start to college football. Winning the O’Connor cup was definitely the highlight of my college football, it was the best end to college football I could have asked for and to win it along side the players and management I did made it even more special.”
DCU ladies football development coach Leona Byrne has heralded the two victories this year over Dublin rivals UCD as the most satisfying wins of the ladies’ campaign this year.
Niall Moyna has expressed his concerns at the GAA’s fixture congestion and the pressure it puts on young players, especially third level players.
