IT’S A BUSY week of action in the Fitzgibbon and Sigerson Cup competitions.

There’s quarter-final places on offer tomorrow in the Fitzgibbon Cup as the last round of group games are held.

In Group A, UCC only need a point to clinch top spot and a home quarter-final tie. Waterford IT or Carlow IT will claim the second spot as they get set to face off in Carriganore.

In Group B, UL have secured top spot with UCD and Mary Immaculate College battling for the second place. Similarly in Group C, Cork IT have bagged top place with Limerick IT and GMIT fighting it out tomorrow for the runner-up spot.

And in Group D, Dublin IT can clinch a home quarter-final if they gain at least a draw against DCU. NUI Galway already have two points after defeating DCU last week.

Here’s the games that are in store tomorrow:
