Junior 1A League leaders Connemara and AIL 1B side Buccaneers will go head-to-head in another heavyweight clash after they overcame Dunmore and Corinthians respectively.
 
Elsewhere Monivea will make the short trip down the N63 to face Creggs, who are aiming for their 3rd Cup success since the start of 2018 after their Curley and Cawley Cup success. Lastly Castlebar take on Corrib after their victories over Ballinrobe and NUIG respectively.
