Five Kerry schools reach Corn Uí Mhuirí quarter-finals with two from Cork and one from Clare
KERRY DOMINATE THE quarter-final line-up of the 2016 Munster Colleges Corn Uí Mhuirí competition after the group stages concluded today.
Reigning champions St Brendan’s – who also won the Hogan Cup in Croke Park in last April – finished top of Group C and are joined by fellow Kingdom outfit IS Killorglin.
Tralee CBS topped Group A, Mercy Mounthawk have qualified from Group B while PS Chorca Dhuibhne – four-in-a-row winners between 2012 and 2015 – go forward from Group D.
Two Cork schools have reached the quarter-final stage with Rochestown College and Coláiste Chríost Rí sealing their progression with victories this afternoon.
St Flannan’s are the sole side not from Kerry or Cork, that will feature in the quarter-final draw on 15 December.
Meanwhile St Colman’s Fermoy saw off St Flannan’s Ennis by 4-22 to 2-19 today after extra-time to reach the quarter-finals of the Dr Harty Cup.
That result brings to seven the number of confirmed Dr Harty Cup quarter-finalists. The county breakdown of the schools is Cork (3), Tipperary (2), Limerick (1) and Waterford (1).

The remaining second round tie will be contested by Thurles CBS and Abbey CBS on 14 December before the draw takes place the following day. That game was postponed last week due to a frozen pitch.
