Senior Boys A

St Brigid’s College, Galway VS Patrician High School, Monaghan

This game is sure to excite volleyball enthusiasts. Last year’s Senior Championship winners (St Brigid’s) look to defend their title against last year’s School Cup winners. (Patrician HS).  The sides have met already this year in a group game from which Brigid’s took the win. However, we all know anything can happen on finals Day.

Senior Girls A

Holy Family SS, Kildare VS Colaiste Muire, Clare

Another reigning champion Holy Family SS take to the court to defend their title against Colaiste Muire, Ennis. We are set for a real chess match of a game as the court will be littered with international players on both sides. Both schools have dominated senior titles for the last three events with 2 going west and one heading to Newbridge.

Court 2, warm up 12pm


Senior B Boys

Mountrath CS, Laois VS Dungarvan College, Waterford

Two strong volleyball schools will meet again in the final match of the day. For Dungarvan it’s a long awaited return to the senior finals since 2018 and as signs may go, that year they took gold over another Laois school. Mountrath need to go back a few years earlier to 2014 for their last appearance and also a winning performance. Both teams have always been knocking on that door so they will be anxious to get back on the roll of honour and take this year’s title home.

Going from strength to strength they will be hoping to add yet another win come Wednesday. Standing in their way however are Portlaoise College, last year’s Senior C champions. A school that will not be there to make up numbers but hoping to re-join the top league in the country as they continue to book their place in finals year after year.
