Rannafast Quarter Final Draw

Tuesday 21.10.2014
Team Talk Mag

Omagh CBS will take on the winners of St Patrick’s Maghera and St Macartan’s Monaghan in the Danske Bank Edmund Rice Rannafast Cup finals. Both those sides meet each other on Friday 1pm in Garvaghey.

The team that loses must play-off with St Patrick’s Armagh for a quarter-final place against another of the Group toppers, St Mary’s Magherafelt, winners of the Brock Shield last year.

The other quarter-finals are fairly straight-forward with Abbey CBS favourites to oust St Patrick’s Cavan, another side that has made an impact at this level over the past couple of seasons.

Finally, St Colman’s Newry, beaten narrowly in last year’s decider, have topped their group and would be tipped to beat St Pius X at the start of November.

Meanwhile in the Danske Bank Rafferty Cup yesterday Our Lady’s Castleblayney had a convincing 3-18 to 4-9 win over St Eunan’s Letterkenny in a quarter-final play-off. No sign of the blanket-defence in that Monaghan v Donegal clash!

That means that they have a quarter-final proper with St Michael’s Lurgan who did pretty well in the league section.

St Columb’s, Derry topped their group and now face Rathmore Grammar, while St Paul’s, Bessbrook are strongly fancied to advance at the expense of Our Lady’s & St Patrick’s Knock.

In the final game, Loreto, Coleraine could well cause a ripple by beating the other south Armagh school, St Paul’s, Bessbrook.
