Athlone CC 1-5

St Marys, Edenderry 1-13

They now advance to meet Dundalk Colleges at the semi final stage of the competition, with both sides hoping to progress to a final where either Coláiste Eoin of Dublin or Moate Community School will be the opposition.

After a strong performance in the North Leinster League and some very good displays in their early championship outings against the Marist of Athlone and Ardscoil na Tríonaide of Athy, Edenderry were well fancied to clear this hurdle of the competition. However they made very hard work of matters, particularly in the early stages of this game.
