IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne has issued a statement following confirmation of Ronan O'Gara's decision to retire from playing professional rugby.
Last season's beaten finalists, Monivea, travelled to Crosshaven, the only Munster club to have won the cup, in a repeat of the 2011 final but this time the western club came out on top 25-16.
Elsewhere Newbridge defeated RIchmond and Skibbereen lost at home to Enniscorthy, which means that Kanturk will be flying the Munster flag in the next round after their 35-7 win over Westport.
Clogher Valley, who made the Ulster Bank League play-offs last season, put an end to the cup hopes of a fancied Coolmine in an exciting 39-37 victory at the Cran.
Donaghadee progressed to the next round with a win in Ballina, while Cooke knocked out OLBC.
The draw for the quarter-finals will take place on Wednesday, November 7, while the last-eight games will be scheduled for Saturday, December 15. The semi-finals are set for January 26 and the final is down for decision on February 9.
