Munster draws made for new knockout format in Dr Harty Cup and Corn Uí Mhuirí
Reigning Harty Cup champions St Flannan’s are away to Cashel CS.

THE DRAWS HAVE been made for a new knockout format in this season’s premier Munster GAA schools competitions with changes enforced by Covid-19.

The group stage structure is no longer in place for the Dr Harty Cup in hurling and the Corn Uí Mhuirí in football.

It has also been decided that home advantage will be in place up to and including the quarter-finals with efforts set to be made to avoid a school having to play twice in a row in the same competition.

It was felt that neutral venues may be more difficult to secure given the current Covid-19 pandemic.

In the Dr Harty Cup draw, reigning champions St Flannan’s Ennis are away to Tipperary side Cashel CS while Christian Brothers College, the beaten finalists this year, will take on Gaelcholáiste Mhuire AG in a Cork city clash.
