Garryowen and Cork Con Gear Up for Quarter Final

Garryowen host Cork Constitution next weekend in what is sure to be a keenly contested ODM Munster Senior Challenge Cup Quarter Final

ODM Munster Senior Challenge Cup

Now that the AIL takes a break for a number of weeks, all eyes turn firmly towards Cup competitions, with the ODM Munster Senior Challenge Cup resuming next weekend when Garryowen host Cork Constitution in Dooradoyle in what promises to be a keenly contested quarter final (day and time tbc).

Both teams have had fantastic starts to their respective seasons- both unbeaten in the first four rounds of the AIB All Ireland League, with 17 points apiece in the league table, just behind leaders Shannon. Last year s beaten finalists, Garryowen came into the ODM Munster Senior Challenge Cup after a bye in the first round, and defeated Young Munster 14-3 to go through to the final five. In the All Ireland League, Garryowen have beaten Belfast Harlequins and Galwegians away and St. Mary s College at home. Last Saturday s 44-6 drubbing of Dublin University at home will certainly give them plenty of confidence coming into this game. Cork Constitution defeated Old Crescent in the opening round of the ODM Munster Senior Challenge Cup, and over the past four weeks have notched up victories over Ballymena away, UL Bohemian, Dungannon and just last Saturday Buccaneers at home in the AIB All Ireland League. Their AIL clash with UL Bohemian doubled up with their Munster Senior Challenge Cup Round Two game, with just two points separating the teams at full time, on a 23-21 score line. Both teams have a proud and long standing history in the competition, with Garryowen having won the title 35 times and Cork Constitution taking the title 22 times in the 120 year history of Munster Senior Cup competition.

Just one quarter final game will take place, with the winners joining Cashel, Dolphin and Shannon in the semi final shake up, with the draw due to be announced after the quarter final fixture. The semi finals are due to take place on November 26th, with the final fixed for New Year s Eve.
