In hurling Glen Rovers, who were victorious in the finals in 2015 and 2016, will take on 2013 champions Midleton. Last year’s title winners, divisional outfit Imokilly, will face Bishopstown with beaten finalists Blackrock taking on Ballymartle.

In football the clash of Ballincollig and Carbery Rangers is the standout fixture in the third round. The sides met in the 2014 and 2016 deciders with Ballincollig winning their maiden title four years and Carbery Rangers lifting their first crown two years ago.

Reigning champions Nemo Rangers, who contested the All-Ireland club final on St Patrick’s Day, will take on O’Donovan Rossa in their third round tie. St Finbarr’s, who lost the county final after a replay last October, are set to meet Mallow.
