Garryowen will be looking to regain the upper hand when they host rivals Galwegians in the Ulster Bank League Division 1A at Dooradoyle tomorrow afternoon (2.30pm).

But much of the Limerick focus will centre around the meeting of UL Bohs and Shannon at Thomond Park tonight (7.30pm) in what is already a key game for both 1B sides.

In the top flight, the Sky Blues have impressed to date with two wins and a draw, but after a one-point loss last time they'll target a return to winning ways against their Connacht rivals.

Cork Con sit in eighth ahead of their clash away to leaders Clontarf at Castle Avenue. Elsewhere, Young Munster make the long journey to Ballymacarn Park, where the league's bottom side, Ballynahinch, lie in wait.

In 2A, there is another all-Munster clash with UCC hosting Cashel at the Mardyke tomorrow. Nenagh Ormond welcome Corinthians to New Ormond Park, and Thomond make the journey to face Malone.

In 2B, Highfield face Greystones away at Dr Hickey Park. Sundays Well host MU Barnhall at Irish Independent Park.

In the bottom tier, Midleton and Old Crescent face off in Towns Park. Bruff are away from home, where they face Boyne at Shamrock Lodge. Kanturk welcome Tullamore to Knocknacolan.
