St Munchin’s were handed a home draw in the semi-finals, with the Corbally side hosting PBC, of Cork, at a Limerick venue on the week beginning February 19.

St Munchin’s, whose last success at Junior Cup level was 20 years ago, earned their last four place with an emphatic quarter-final win over St Clement’s College on Thomond Park’s back pitch on Tuesday.

PBC defeated Crescent College 25-14 in their quarter-final on Wednesday at UL.

The second Junior Cup semi-final will see history-making Bandon Grammar School face holders CBC, of Cork.
