The Limerick Charity Cup final takes place at the Markets Field on Friday, December 28, 6pm

THE fixture details have been confirmed for the upcoming Limerick Charity Cup final and next month’s 126th Bank of Ireland Munster Senior Cup final.

Local rivals Garryowen and Young Munster will face off in the Limerick Charity Cup final at the Markets Field on Friday, December 28 at 6pm.

Garryowen have defeated both Shannon and Bruff to reach the traditional first domestic club final of the season, while Young Munster will be having their first outing in the final as their scheduled quarter-final and semi-final fixtures didn’t take place.

Meanwhile, the Bank of Ireland Munster Senior Challenge Cup final will take place in a month's time with holders Garryowen set to meet Cork Constitution at Thomond Park on Saturday, January 5, kick-off 2pm.

Garryowen FC lead the way with most Munster Senior Cup wins, with the first of their 37 titles coming in 1889.

This year sees Cork Constitution strive for their 28th Senior Cup title.

Garryowen defeated Shannon 27-9 in their Munster Senior Cup semi-final clash in September, while Cork Con overcame Highfield 22-16 in their last four clash last November.
