The venues for the 2011 Junior Inter-Provincial Championship have been finalised. Connacht will start their campaign with a home game against Ulster hosted by Tuam RFC on 30th April before travelling to Donnybrook to face Leinster on the 7th of May. The final game will see Connacht face Munster in the home of Our Ladies Boys Club at The Sportsground in Galway on May 14th.

Connacht will look to build on the good work of previous years. In 2009 the Western Province came very close to an historic series win, only to be denied by an extra time try and conversion  by Leinster and last year saw Connacht again finish within a score of Leinster and beating Munster 24 25 at Ballincollig RFC but a defeat to Ulster handed the title to Leinster.
