RESULTS: Limerick schools off to a flyer as the Munster Schools Senior Cup kicks off

The opening round of the Munster Schools Senior Cup kicked off this week with a Limerick derby between Ardscoil Ris and Castletroy College.

The Limerick derby ended in disappointment for Castletroy, as Ardscoil Ris began their cup campaign with a seven point win over the visitors.

Limerick schools powerhouse Crescent Comp got one over on the Munster CSP side this week at Dooradoyle, Crescent haven’t lifted a senior cup since their back to back victories in 2013 and 2014.

2015 winners Rockwell fell short of an impressive St Munchins side a home. The opening loss for Rockwell gives their cup campaign a less than ideal start but its a very positive early showing from Munchins.

There was also a Cork derby in this year’s Senior Cup opener with Bandon Grammar delivering a shock defeat to PBC. Presentation have been more than dominant in the tournament’s past few years, yet we could be witnessing a passing of the pres’ torch to a hopeful Bandon side.
