Mary's braced for mouthwatering Terenure derby
ST MARY'S clash with Terenure College will be the pick of the first-round fixtures in the Bank of Ireland Leinster Schools Senior Cup.
By and large, the big guns were kept apart in last night's draw, with champions Cistercian Roscrea pitted with Kilkenny College and favourites Blackrock College drawn against one of the finalists of the Vinnie Murray Cup.
Newbridge College will face last year's beaten finalists Belvedere in a mouth-watering round one fixture, while Clongowes Wood will face King's Hospital and St Michael's face a local derby of their own against St Andrew's.
In the Junior Cup, defending champions Blackrock will take on St Mary's in the first round.
