SSI League Finals Round-Up


Last Thursday 28th November in Maynooth University the SSI Volleyball League came to an end. 6 games were all showcased on Volleyball Ireland Facebook page for Students, Friends and Families to see the league Semi-Finals & Finals.

In the Women’s Semi Finals TCD & NUI Galway dismissed Maynooth & UCC quite convincingly.

TCD then showed why they are strong Premier Women’s team in the National League with a dominant 2-0 win over NUI Galway.

On the Men’s side RCSI defeated IT Carlow easily while TU Dublin City Campus were dumped out by Galway Mayo IT in the game of the day.

Galway Mayo IT just didn’t seem to get going in the final which enabled RCSI to take home the Men’s League trophy for 2019/20.

All finalists have received entry to the 2019/20 Championships which will take place in Gormanston Park on Saturday February 29th & Sunday March 1st for what is said to be an amazing weekend of volleyball.

This years Championship Finals will be held in Gormanston on the weekend of the Championships, differently than in 2018/19 when they were part of the Finals Weekend.
