DI Men return to summit- Astra Ladies complete perfect season

The familiar surroundings of the Sports Hall in Dublin City University played host on Saturday April 28th to the Men’s and Ladies IOHA Senior Finals and after 2 exciting matches the Dublin International Men and the Astra Ladies went home with the silverware.

In the Ladies final Astra were looking to continue their perfect season and add to their IOHA Cup and the pre-season Corn Chothrom na Feinne (annual match vs. UCD). After a tense 1st half the girls in blue ran out victorious after 60 minutes on a scoreline of 20-12.

In the Men’s final, Dublin International were returning to the final after a break of 2 years having failed to qualify in 2017 after a break when the IOHA league trophy used to reside permanently on the mantelpiece in Phibblestown. Facing them in the final was the defending league champions and 2018 Cup winners, Dublin City. Unfortunately home court advantage was not enough for DCH and after a titanic battle DI were victorious on a 28-26 scoreline.

The President of the IOHA, Mr. Fintan Lyons was on hand to present the trophies and medals to the participating teams.
