Ardscoil Rís learn Harty Cup opponents for coming season as group stage draw is made

Ardscoil Rís will enter the competition as Ireland champions after their maiden success on St Patricks Day.

Defending All-Ireland champions Ardscoil Rís have been drawn in Group C of the 2022/23 Dr Harty Cup.

The North Circular road are in a group of three alongside St Flannans and Cashel Community School.

St Flannans were champions in 2020 and lead the roll of honour with 22 triumphs. Cashel are yet to be crowned champions.

Last year, Ardscoil Rís were beaten for the first time in the Harty Cup final in their sixth decider.

But Niall Moran’s men regrouped to take All-Ireland honours for the first time, defeating St Kierans College in the Croke Cup final.

Meanwhile, St Flannans lost both of their games last year to fall in the second round while Cashel the ones to knock them out. The Tipperary school were then defeated by Thurles CBS in the quarter-finals.

This year, the competition returns to its original format with four groups, two containing four teams and two with three sides. The top two from each advance to the quarter-finals.

Reigning kingpins, St Joseph’s Tulla are also in a three team group as they are paired with St Colmans and Midleton in group D.

Ardscoil Ris, Limerick’s sole representative in the competition, have been a perennial contender in the Harty Cup since their breakthrough in 2010.

That year they claimed their first title and since added wins in 2011, ‘14, ‘16 and ‘18. That is enough for seventh in the roll of honour, level with Rockwell College.
