AIB League Fixtures Announced

AIB League Fixtures Announced

The new AIB League season will kick off in style on Saturday, October 3 with a series of mouth-watering local derbies getting the action underway in Division 1A.

Champions Shannon will kick off their AIB League title defence with a trip to Dooradoyle to face local rivals Garryowen, the team they beat in last season’s semi-final.

Division 1A of the AIB League kicks off with three local derbies that promise to get the season off to a flying start.

In addition to the Dooradoyle clash, Musgrave Park will be the venue for the Cork derby between Dolphin and Cork Constitution, while Templeville Road will see St. Mary’s College host last season’s beaten finalists Clontarf.

The final game of the opening round sees UL Bohemians play host to Blackrock College in an interprovincial tie that produced seven tries last season.

The newly-created AIB League Division 1B promises to be a hotly-contested section this season with the reward for the league winner being a place in the overall Division One play-offs and a crack at the title.

Newly-promoted UCC will be aiming to make a mark as the highest ranked of the College sides, while Division Two champions Ballynahinch will be hoping to add to their amazing silverware haul from last season.

The Cork students travel to Anglesea Road for their first game against Old Belvedere, while ‘Hinch face their Ulster rivals Ballymena first time out.

In AIB League Division 2, all eyes will be on Lansdowne who missed out on promotion in the last game of the season.

They open their account this season with a trip to Old Wesley who captured the Division Three and promotion last term.

Terenure College and UCD will be hoping to bounce back to top flight status after a disappointing 2008/09 campaign.

‘Nure, with new coach Ian ‘Moggy’ Morgan on board, will get their campaign underway away to Dublin University, while UCD will host the newly-promoted Corinthians.

In AIB League Division 3, Navan will set out their stall with a trip to provincial rivals County Carlow.

Meanwhile, Queen’s University will be hoping to mount a strong promotion challenge again this season. Their first game is at home to Banbridge.

Instonians and Wanderers, both of whom dropped down from the second tier of the league last season, face opening day clashes with local provincial rivals. ‘Inst face Portadown, while Wanderers will be at home to Suttonians.

All games will kick off at 2.30pm.
