Glenstal Abbey travel to Musgrave Park on tomorrow, Wednesday (2pm) to take on Rockwell College, while another Limerick side, Castletroy College will face Coláiste Pobail Bheanntraí at Thomond Park's back-pitch on Friday (1.30pm).

This is Coláiste Pobail Bheanntraí’s first time qualifying for the Pinergy Munster Schools Senior Cup.

Dates and times for round two of the competition which will feature Limerick sides Ardscoil Ris, Crescent College Comprehensive and St Munchin's College will be announced in due course.

Before Christmas, teams competed in a round-robin series of fixtures which was first introduced in the 2019/20 season.

Schools were divided into two groups, Group A and Group B, with teams seeded for the knockout rounds based on their performance in the group stages. Crescent College Comprehensive and Bandon Grammar School finished on top of Group A and Group B, respectively.

A Munster Club Select Player (CSP) side representing clubs from across the province also took part in the Senior Cup Group A competition.
