2015-16 Championship Tips Off With Mouth Watering Clash

The 2015-16 IOHA Senior Men’s league tips off this weekend with a mouth watering clash between Astra HC and University College Dublin (UCD).

The game sees 2015 IOHA Cup winners Astra at home to 2015 IOHA Final 4 runners up UCD, UCD surprised Astra in the semi final last April in Phibblestown but ultimately came up short against Dublin International HC in the final.

While there is no suggestion that Astra will be out for revenge, they will want to make a good start at home to the new campaign.

The teams recently met in their annual pre season friendly ( Chothrom Corn na Feinne ) where Astra ran out winners 29-23 but that will count for nothing in the league.

Both teams will be eager to show off any new signings they made over the summer and the action starts at 9.30 a.m. on Sunday in Loughlinstown leisure centre.
