IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne has issued a statement following confirmation of Ronan O'Gara's decision to retire from playing professional rugby.
Crosshaven are the reigning champions but they face a difficult trip to Cooke as they open their title defence. The Belfast side lost at the semi-final stage last season.
Beaten finalists Monivea are also on the road in the opening round as they travel to Holmpatrick to face Skerries. The north county Dublin outfit were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Cooke last time around.
2009 winners Tullamore are at home to Tipperary club Kilfeacle. The draw for round 2 will take place on Tuesday, October 27 at the IRFU offices and will be posted online and released to clubs immediately afterwards.
The second round takes place on November 26, with the semi-finals on February 4 and the final set for February 18.
