Fitzgibbon Cup glory for UCC as hurlers beat IT Carlow in thrilling final
The spirit of the UCC Skull and Crossbones is alive and well, with this latest victory bringing UCC's total Fitzgibbon Cup title tally up to 42
Pride in our chest, belief in our heart, sport in our bones – and another Fitzgibbon Cup to our name!
There were major celebrations this month as UCC’s mighty hurlers made it two-in-a-row in the Fitzgibbon Cup, claiming victory over IT Carlow in a thrilling final in Dublin, on 12 February.
With a final score of 0-18 to 2-11, the UCC team – led by manager Tom Kingston – ended their Electric Ireland Higher Education Championships 2020 campaign on a high, bringing the silverware back to Leeside.
The win brings UCC’s Fitzgibbon Cup tally up to an astonishing 42 in total.

Standout performances on the night came from Darragh Fitzgibbon, Shane Kingston, and man-of-the-match Shane Conway. Conway, last year’s Electric Ireland Rising Stars Hurler of the Year, scored nine points in total – including the clincher.
There was already great momentum surrounding UCC as they approached the final, thanks to yet another incredible performance – this time from Mark Coleman, in the semi-final against DCU.
Coleman sealed UCC’s victory over the Dublin side, and booked his team’s place in the final with a stunning point scored from the sideline in the 65th minute.
Footage of Coleman’s score did the rounds across social media, going on to grab headlines and raise high expectations for UCC in the final.

As the players, coaches and management team celebrate another successful season, the spirit of the UCC Skull and Crossbones is well and truly alive.
