Garryowen welcome All-Ireland League Division 1A leaders Cork Con to Dooradoyle tomorrow in a massive Munster derby that will have a huge bearing on both sides' campaigns.

With 11 wins from 13 games, Cork Con are eight points clear at the top of the standings, and 17 points ahead of their fifth-placed Limerick opponents, but both sides are keen to claim the points as well as the provincial bragging rights.

UCC are at home to Shannon in the other all-Munster clash at Mardyke tomorrow. The hosts are five points but just one place behind Shannon in the table. Young Munster are ninth before they go to Lansdowne.

Nenagh Ormond and Cashel face off in the derby at New Ormond Park this evening. There is another Munster derby when leaders Highfield host Old Crescent.

Dolphin go to Galwegians and UL Bohemians are at home against Navan.

In 2B, relegation-threatened Sunday's Well are bottom of the standings, and home to leaders MU Barnhall this weekend.

In the bottom tier, Midleton face off against Malahide, Bruff are away to Seapoint, and Thomond take on table-toppers Ballina.
