So, after the weekend’s IJC fixtures, the clear-up job has been laid out for the next few rounds following the fall-out from TRR and Clontarf’s dismissal. Pembroke’s impressive 3-0 win sees them into the quarter-finals. Railway and Monkstown are the other Leinster sides remaining but face exceptionally tough trips to Banbridge and Cookstown respectively.
They could, in time, be joined in the final 8 by Weston and Corinthian.
In the women’s competition, Leinster sides make up half of the quarter-final berths with Hermes, Glenanne, Railway and Pembroke still vying for the title.
