Irish Senior Cup draws

The draw for the Irish Senior Cup was made earlier today with Monkstown against Cookstown looking the pick of the bunch. Instonians will host Cork Harlequins in another decent looking tie. YM face Pembroke in the Sandymount derby while Suttonians could earn a second pop at Glenanne if they beat Catholic Institute.

On the women's side, Hermes play UCD once again having already duelled in league and IHL action this term. Harlequins face a second trip to Ballymoney having drawn there in the first round of IHL matches while UCC represent a serious test to Railway Union at the Mardyke. The students are threatening to break Quins' stranglehold on Munster, inflicting their first defeat in several years of domestic action recently.

It's actually ridiculous how many time Suttonians get drawn against Glennane!!! Twice last year and now twice this year, assuming we can beat Catholic Institute.... Something dodgy there....
