Cian Lynch in action for NUIG
FITZGIBBON Cup medals are on the line in today's final of the Higher Education Senior Hurling Championship when UL and NUI Galway clash in IT Carlow at 3.15pm.
In the first final meeting between the universities, UL will look to avenge the Sigerson Cup final loss to the Galway side on Wednesday evening - while the Galway side dream of a double-success. The game will be broadcast live on TG4.
NUI Galway boast 2021 Hurler of the Year Cian Lynch as their main man, with the Limerick star already a two time Fitzgibbon Cup winner with Mary Immaculate College.
Indeed the Patrickswell man is renewing final rivalries with UL - he won his first Fitzgibbon Cup title when Mary I defeated UL in the 2016 final.
The following year, Lynch and MIC won a second Fitzgibbon Cup title when the Limerick side defeated IT Carlow in the final.
UL will be seeking their seventh Higher Education Senior Hurling Championship title, while NUI Galway will be chasing a first title since 2010 and their 11th ever crown.
It's 2018 since UL won the last of their titles.
