LEINSTER SENIOR SCHOOLS Cup holders Belvedere College will meet St Michael’s College in the last four of this year’s competition after the draw was made this afternoon.

Belvo, who have beaten Gonzaga and Newbridge en route to the semi-final stage, are bidding to win their third successive title but will face stiff opposition in the form of the two-time winners.

Michael’s have been the most polished outfit this season and comfortably defeated Clongowes Wood at Donnybrook this afternoon to book their place in the semi-final draw.

In the other last four tie, Blackrock College’s quest for a 69th title, and first since 2014, will continue against St Mary’s, who yesterday beat Roscrea in a thrilling quarter-final.

The semi-finals will be played on 5 and 6 March at Donnybrook, with both to be shown live on eir Sport.

The final of the 2018 Leinster Schools Senior Cup will take place on Sunday 18 March at the RDS.
