Electric Ireland will be providing a double dose of Higher Education Championships live stream this week beginning with the Sigerson Final on Wednesday before the highly-anticipated Fitzgibbon Cup clash between DCU and WIT on Thursday.
After topping Group A, Eoin Roche’s DCU DE side earned themselves a home quarter-final in the Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon Cup. In round one, they narrowly saw off the University of Limerick in Dublin while they sealed their spot in the knockout stages with an eight-point win over Maynooth.
Their final group game was a comprehensive 4-25 to 1-11 win over Trinity College Dublin.

Last Thursday, Waterford IT were confirmed as DCU’s opponents. The Fintan O’Connor-managed side finished as runners-up in Group B after losing out to Mary Immaculate College on a scoreline of 2-11 to 0-15 in Limerick last week.
The 2015 finalists are likely to be without star player Austin Gleeson for the clash in the DCU Sportsgrounds after the former Hurler of the Year limped off with an injury during the narrow loss.
