The draws have been made for the quarter-finals of both the Irish Senior and National Cups and there are some mouth-watering clashes in store next month.
Holders Merrion face a journey north to face the winners of Coleraine v Waringstown, while three times winners North Down are away to either Pembroke or Bready.
There’s an all-NCU clash at Belmont where CIYMS entertain Instonians, while Balbriggan – playing in the competition for the first time – face a daunting engagement at either The Hills or Donemana.
In the National Cup, Malahide have home advantage over Midleton, while holders Rush take on fellow Leinster side Terenure – who knocked Limerick out in a dramatic super-over decider at the weekend.
County Kerry face the long trek north to County Tyrone to play Strabane, while Derriaghy will host the winners of the Newbuildings v Knockharley match.
All the games will be played on Sunday July 9th, with the reserve date being July 23rd.
