The first round of the 2014 Ulster Bank All Ireland Junior Cup gets underway on Saturday 26th October with a host of mouth-watering ties taking place around the country.
 
Wanderers FC, established in 1870, will line out in their first All Ireland Junior Cup fixture as they travel to O’Dowd Park to take on Tralee.
 
2013 runners-up Enniscorthy play host to Belfast’s CIYMS at Ross Road and 2012 runners-up Monivea welcome Portadown to the Castle Grounds.
 
Pat Fitzgerald, President of the IRFU, commented, “Since the competition was re-constituted in 2005, the All Ireland Junior Cup has become one of the most prestigious competitions in the club calendar and has proven to be a catalyst for many junior clubs as they progress into the senior ranks.” 
 
Tullamore RFC, who won the All Ireland Junior Cup in 2013 and 2012, are currently two wins from two in their first season in Division 2B of the Ulster Bank Leagues.
 
All of this Saturday’s All Ireland Junior Cup fixtures kick off at 2.30pm.  Match previews available on www.irishrugby.ie
