After UCD beat North Kildare 4-0 on Saturday and, later, Railway Union were 3-0 down at half-time to Corinthian, the students’ title-retaining job appeared as good as done. Not quite, though, Railway coming back to win 4-3 – three weeks after drawing with the champions, having been 4-0 down. Despite that resilience, though, the title remains firmly in UCD’s hands. A point ahead with one game to go, if they beat bottom club Trinity they will retain the title.

Loreto’s 1-0 win over Old Alexandra keeps them in the mathematical hunt, four points behind UCD with a game in hand, while Hermes, in fourth, moved three points clear of Alexandra with a 5-0 victory over Glenanne.

After beating the Munster champions 2-1 on Saturday, Cork Harlequins can regain the title they lost to Catholic Institute two seasons ago if they beat UCC in their final game fixture.

Pembroke Wanderers and Lisnagarvey, meanwhile, will meet in the Irish Junior Cup final, Pembroke beating Ashton 6-0, a late Sara Allen goal giving Lisnagarvey a 2-1 win over Hermes.
Results – Irish Junior Cup – Semi-finals: Ashton 0, Pembroke Wanderers 6; Lisnagarvey 2, Hermes 1.
Leinster League – Division One: North Kildare 0, UCD 4 (C Watkins 2, K Mullan 2); Railway Union 4 (Z Delany, I Joyce, S Dooley, J McDonnell pen), Corinthian 3 (A Connery, S Quinn 2); Old Alexandra 0, Loreto 1 (N Small); Pembroke Wanderers 1 (J Collins), Trinity 0; Hermes 5 (L Pinder 3, A Harte 2), Glenanne 0.
