Limerick clubs learn their fate in Munster Junior Cup draw

The draw has been made for this season's Bank of Ireland Munster Junior Cup

THE Bank of Ireland Munster Junior Cup draw has been announced for this season.

As in previous seasons the first two rounds are seeded with the losers of Round 1 playing in the Bowl and losers in Round 2 will play in the Plate competition.

The opening round sees three Senior club sides in action.

Bruff must make the long journey to Dunmanway with the winners at home to Dungarvan in the second round.

Clonmel second XV playing in the competition for the first time have a home draw against Ennis with the winners away to either Scariff or Cobh Pirates.

Sunday’s Well will host Mitchelstown in Round One and the winners will entertain Cashel in Round 2.

The third round where all the top sides enter the competition will see holders Highfield away to either Muskerry or St Mary’s.

The winners of that tie will host the winners of the third tie between last year’s defeated finalists Cork Constitution who have a home game against struggling Skibbereen.

Other interesting draws in the third round are the meeting of Garryowen and Richmond, Shannon v Bandon and the all first division clash between Newcastle West and Thomond.
