The Ireland Under-19 squad to face Australia Schools at Ravenhill on Saturday week (December 14) has been announced.
TULLAMORE v WESTPORT, Spollanstown
MONIVEA v COLERAINE, Castle Grounds
In the first semi-final, former winners Tullamore will have home advantage at Spollanstown when they take on Mayo side Wesport.
Tullamore made it through to the last-four courtesy of a 21-6 away win over Academy at the quarter-final stage.
In the previous round, Tullamore had recorded a resounding 43-7 victory over Tipperary side Kilfeacle.
Wesport accounted for two Ulster teams on their journey to the penultimate stage of the competition, beating Portadown away (8-0) and then Cooke (9-5) at their Mayo base.
On the other side of the draw, it will be Connacht versus Ulster, with Monivea making it through to earn a home semi-final against Coleraine after defeating two Leinster sides, Skerries (9-8) and Coolmine (13-0), in the previous rounds.
Coleraine have been impressive in their first round and the quarter-final wins, but this will be their first away game in the competition, as both of their previous triumphs came at home against Tuam (34-6) and Dundalk (29-15).
The semi-final draw was performed by Stephen Hilditch, Chairman of the IRFU Domestic Game Committee, and Ian McIlrath, Chairman of the IRFU All-Ireland League Committee.
