Last season’s beaten finalists Enniscorthy will be hoping to make up for their disappointment by claiming the trophy at the second time of asking. They kick off their campaign with a home tie against CIYMS.

Monivea, who reached the finals in both 2011 and 2012, will also have ambitions to finally get their hands on the coveted cup but they face a difficult first round game against Portadown.

Wanderers, who will be hoping to bring All-Ireland Junior Cup rugby to the Aviva Stadium’s back pitch for the first time, face a trip to Kerry to play Tralee.

The first round matches take place on Saturday, October 26th.
