Munster A’s inaugural Celtic Cup campaign kicks off on Friday with Connacht A visiting Irish Independent Park for a 5.30pm kick-off.
Head Coach Peter Malone will be naming his side for the clash tomorrow as Munster look to make a winning start to the new tournament.

All three of Munster’s home games will be played on the new modified 3G surface at Irish Independent Park
Entry to all three home Celtic Cup round games are free for Full and Associate members of the MRSC.
