UCC Derby In The Mardyke Tonight
The Donal Walsh Trophy is for U20 teams and a very successful recruitment drive last summer resulted in UCC becoming the first club to to enter two teams in the competition. The Beagles and Bloodhounds names are a throwback to the UCC team names of yesteryear. There are 22 schools represented among the two teams which is made up of local talent and players from as far away as Bahrain and Trinidad and Tobago. The UCC Beagles are coached by the Munster Women’s team Head Coach, Wayne Falvey, and Don Keogh with both former players. The side’s captain is Bobby Smith. Conor Twomey, Denis O’Riordan and Christy Cantillon are in charge of the UCC Bloodhounds with Patrick O’Riordan captaining the side.
