Leinster School's Cup draws

The draw was made this week for the Leinster schoolboy cup competitions to take place in the New Year.

For the first time, the senior cup was seeded in response to it being nominated as the qualifying competition for the inaugural John Waring tournament.

The two finalists from the senior cup qualify as Leinster's representatives. The other cups are not seeded.

To see the full draw in a larger format, click on the images on the left.

In the senior league, St Andrew's and Wesley look set for a playoff in the New Year after the sides drew earlier this term. Andrew's won all their remaining league fixtures while the Ballinteer school looks on course to repeat the feat.

They have league ties with Sutton Park and King's Hospital left.

bets on wesley to take senior and junior

watch out for Mount Temple/Sutton Park in the Junior Cup

sutton park aren't in the senior and cup sanford are drawn twice, bit of a mistake

Don't Write off Kilkenny in the Senior Cup. They only lost 3-2 to Wesley in the league in Dublin, and they have them at home for the cup. I predict a Kilkenny Vs. St.Andrews final, with the all ireland champions winning in the end.

Apologies, Sutton Park play the winners of Andrews and Columba's. I'll amend the draw in due course.

would people like to see an andrews v wesley final or would you like to see someone new in the final, is seeding really a good idea?

bandon man said...

SORRY NOW,but in the senior league how are wesley set to play andrews in a league playoff final considering bandon beat wesley and have to play andrews in the new year!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

because thats the "ALL IRELAND LEAGUE". WESLEY AND ANDREWS TO PLAY IN LEINSTER LEAGUE PLAYOFF. the all ireland league works wothin the leinster league. bandon or ashton cant win leinster league

Anonymous said...

BANDON AND WESLEY ARE NOT IN THE SAME LEAGUE, it was a friendly that they played

bandon man said...

o id say it was a friendly alright!!! why would wesley train down to cork to play ashton and bandon?? leinster people would moan if they had to travel 15 minutes down the road and u notice the way bandon have won the title for the last 4 years well thats way they get an easier group in the schools! so id say the league does matter!

Anonymous said...

Exactly, i think it should be either bandon should be allowed play and win it or not play in it at all!! And it was john scottus that played in the junior cup recently not sutton park!

how can u say its going 2 b an andrews wesley final if your not playing? have you even seen high school, kilkenny, sutton etc this year?

Anonymous said...

well said kilkenny are looking very good, wesley are not as good as everyone seems to think and hopefully somebody else (not andrews) can prove that this year, sutton should give andrews a good game too

Anonymous said...

of course its going to be andrews wesley final thats just the way it is!

I just checked this post in an internet cafe and realise that it is very oddly alligned.

My apologies for this. Unfortunately, after a bit of fiddling, I've realised for some people it will look a bit odd based on your resolution settings on your computer. No need to adjust your screen, just unfortunate...

I think it's wrong that the leinster cup is seeded and the ulster cup isn't. both should be the same.

Anonymous said...

so andrews and high school in the final then?

Anonymous said...

agree with the high school part but i'd say sutton will beat andrews

Anonymous said...

look out for kilkenny/mount temple in the junior cup both teams will never give up.

the ulster cup (Burney Cup) is seeded this year!

how are newpark and mount temple at senior level these days?

Anonymous said...

mount temple are supposed to have A lot of young players and newpark firsts play a lot of seconds teams

Anonymous said...

Ive seen the two teams lately and i'm not sure about their chances. The newpark seniors have lost a lot of players this year and aren't as good as they have been for the last few years. Mount Temple have two good players who are playing for the Clontarf team doing well this year but im not sure they have a strong enough team!

Anonymous said...

Anything other than Wesley v St Andrews in all finals would require a major shock.Sutton Park have a tidy U13 team St Killians strong at Minor. St Columbas too. Kilkenny and Mount Temple at Junior. No one going to get near Wesley and Andrews at Senior. High School have some handy players but not enough.

i dont think wesley will get past kilkenny, after all kilkenny are playing wesley at home, the last time the two played wesley were at home and they just managed to beat kilkenny 3-2.

Anonymous said...

come on kilkenny show them that there not as good as they think they are

Anonymous said...

andrews wil win it this year. wesley will strugglee to get to the final

Anonymous said...

kilkenny andrews final this year with kilkenny winning in a surprise upset!

Anonymous said...

While Wesley haven't won an All-Irelands in about 4 years Kikenny still don't have enough match winners. I'm in Wesley and Sutton will win U13 Cup, Wesley Minor and Junior Cup but unfortunately Andrews are looking too good in the Senior. One more thing, Sutton, High school, Mt.Temple and Killenny haven't a hope in the Senior!

high school in the semis again. eased past a decent mount temple side.

Mount Temple were 1-0 up with 20 mins to go in the match. Should have gone on to win the game. High School were very very lucky....

kilkenny vs. wesley has to be replayed because finished 2-2AET. 1-1 before extra time.Kilkenny took lead around 10mins into 2nd half and looked as if they were heading through but a few minutes from end wesley equalised. wesley then took lead early in 2nd half of extra time. very tense finish and kilkenny pressure payed off when they equalised with a couple of minutes left.unbelievable, worthy of final. wesley man!

Kilkenny College drew 2-2 after extra time and have to go for a replay next week. Unreal game.
