THE draw for the ODM Financial Munster Senior Cup took place yesterday in Bandon and the first round draw has thrown up a repeat of last season’s final.
In the standout tie of the round, holders Cork Constitution will travel to UL Bohemians, with the winner facing either Midleton or Sunday’s Well at home in the quarter-finals.
The meeting of Richmond and Garryowen is among two all-Limerick first round meetings, with the prospect of another derby in the last eight should Young Munster overcome Cashel.
The other Limerick face-off is between Shannon and Bruff, the winners of whom will have a home quarter-final against either Dolphin or Thomond, which could potentially give another all-Limerick meeting should Thomond prevail.
Old Crescent are at home to Highfield in the first round and whoever comes through that tie will meet either UCC or Nenagh Ormond. The first round fixtures are due to be played in September.
