UCC Hockey Update 15/04/24

15 Apr 2024
We are delighted to announce that Bruce College have come on board as one of our club partners. Bruce College, is a school of academic excellence for 5th years, 6th years and Repeat Leaving Certificate students, with a proven record of accomplishment over 30 years. They cater for students who want to achieve their academic potential and progress to further education with many of their students coming to UCC. 


We are coming to the business end of the season at UCC Hockey.

On paper the Division 1 side could be promoted to EYHL1 and win the Munster League, the Division 2 side came second in their Munster League and reached an Irish Junior Cup semi final and Munster Cup semi final, the Division 3 side could be promoted to Division 2 and win their Munster Cup and the Division 5 could be promoted to Division 4 ! All this potential success comes down to a handful of matches at the end of the season. So near but yet so far. 
Whatever happens over the next 2 weeks the real success is getting over a 100 students out playing hockey for the season !
Match Results
The weekend games started in the Mardyke with Div 3 playing their final Munster League game against Clonakilty. A win would mean a play off opportunity for promotion to Div 2. Goals were scored by Claire Jermyn (2) and in form player Laura Barr (2) with a single reply from Clonakilty. FT 4-1 to the students and a playoff game against Cork Wanderers for Division 2 promotion. The team also look forward to a Munster Cup Final against C of I at the end of April.
The Div 1 side played their final Munster League game away to Ashton. Goals from Abi O Mahony, Jane Murphy and Julia McCarthy have UCC a 0-3 win and a playoff for the League title against Cork Harlequins. More importantly UCC play Belfast Harlequins next Saturday in Garryduff in the semi final of the EYHL2. A win means promotion to EYHL1 for 2024/25.
Division 2 played their final game of the season against Belvedere in the Munster Division 2 League last Thursday. A 1-6 win for UCC was a good finish for a team who have played well all season.
Div 5 will have a playoff game against Dungarvan for promotion to Division 4 next Sunday. This is a crucial game for the club and fingers crossed the team can do the business. 

The Women's Masters interpros took place last weekend in Three Rock Rovers, Dublin. Some former UCC Players played with Munster and Leinster. L to R Fran Doonan, Aoife McCarthy and Ros McKeown
