In the Women’s Division, UL Bohemian will begin their title defence away to Blackrock College, the 2022/23 winners, at Stradbrook. Newly-promoted Tullow will play their first All-Ireland League game at home to Wicklow.

Nenagh Ormond begin life in Division 1B at home to Dublin University, while there are away trips for newly-promoted Instonians and Galway Corinthians in Division 2A, as they take on Buccaneers and Ballymena respectively.

Clogher Valley’s first challenge in Division 2B is an Ulster derby against Malone in Belfast.

Coming up from the junior ranks, Ballyclare will begin their first ever Energia All-Ireland League campaign away to Tullamore. Also in Division 2C, Monkstown, the other promoted club, will mark their return to the league after 21 years with a visit to Midleton.

In addition, it has been announced that the Energia All-Ireland Men’s Junior Cup will kick off on Saturday, October 26, with four rounds to play and the final taking place on Saturday, January 25.

Bective Rangers, who lost the 2024 final to Ballyclare, will be looking to go one better this season. They take on Cork club Mallow in the first round.

The Energia All-Ireland Women’s Junior Cup draw will be conducted once the four provinces’ representatives have been confirmed.

Both the Men’s and Women’s Divisions of Energia All-Ireland League will feature two ‘No Rugby Weekends’ during the coming season.

These weekends are separate to reserve weekends in the calendar to allow players, coaches, and volunteers to manage their time away from rugby. The first ‘No Rugby Weekend’ will coincide with the Ireland Men’s final Autumn Nations Series match against Australia on Saturday, November 30.

Speaking about the release of the Energia All-Ireland League fixtures, IRFU Competitions Manager Kevin Beggs said:

Work on completing these fixtures commenced as soon as the curtain came down on the 2023/24 season.

“We try hard to satisfy club requests and almost all were accommodated. We’re delighted to be able to confirm fixtures for all 60 participating teams as early as June.”
