Dates and times for round two of the competition will be announced in due course.
Before Christmas, teams competed in a round-robin series of fixtures which was first introduced in the 2019/20 season.

A Munster Club Select Player (CSP) side representing clubs from across the province also took part in the Senior Cup Group A competition.
