On Saturday the Firsts got a 2-1 home victory against our old Intermediate League rivals, Donegal Celtic. The Seconds lost 3-2 at home to Donaghadee while the Colts match against Portaferry was postponed.
Have a look at the gallery from the final here.
In yesterday’s final, Queen’s lost 2-1 to a superb injury time strike from UCD’s Daire O’Connor. This was a tremendous effort from Ruairí Taylor’s lads who played some superb football and gave us great entertainment over the course of the three days. Also, big congratulations go to University College Dublin who played a great final and were worthy winners on the day.
Well done to Denis, the committee and the staff at the Dub for organising a great Collingwood. Special thanks go to the groundskeepers who managed the inclement weather brilliantly to keep everything running.
Congratulations to our chairman, Denis Clarke, on being the recipient of the 2018 Dr. Tony O’Neill award for services to Irish Universities Football. The picture is Denis receiving the award from our president and IUFU patron, Bishop Tony Farquhar.

Queen’s advanced to the Collingwood Cup Final with a 4-3 win over University College Cork. Another two goals from Eamon Fyfe (to add to his hat-trick yesterday), one from Matt Hughes and Daire Rooney, again, adding the fourth, put QUB through.
See you all tomorrow at the Dub for the final, where our opponents will be UCD!
