MHS Team by Team Guide: Munster Junior Cup

Via Munster Haka Schools


Ardscoil Ris

Ardscoil will admittedly come into this year’s Junior Cup with a weaker set-up than previous seasons but with some individual inspiration they have a chance of defying the odds.

Rating: 4/10

Captain: Ferdia Lyons

Star Man: Adam McNamara

Opening Game: St Munchins

Predicted Finish: 2nd Round

Bandon Grammar

Bandon are of course new on the scene this year but friendly form would suggest that their ready for the step up. An impressive recent victory over Glenstal, a mark of their progress.

Rating: 5/10

Captain: Michael Archer

Star Man: Michael Connolly

Opening Game: Rockwell

Predicted Finish: Quarter Final

Castletroy College:

A very slow start to the season slumping to consecutive heavy defeats has been turned around impressively to grasp a victory over Comp and a draw against their fellow City Cup finalists Munchins, in the last month.

Rating: 6/10

Captain: Ronan Keaveney

Star Man: Eoin Murphy

Opening Game: Glenstal

Predicted Finish: Quarter-Finals


One of the stand-out favourites with considerable bulk and silky skills. Perhaps only their biggest rivals Pres can cause a major challenge.

Rating: 8/10

Captain: Scott Buckley

Star Man: Scott Buckley

Opening Game: Crescent

Predicted Finish: Runners-up


After just coming in through a qualifier against Clonmel, Clements have been fared with a highly unfortunate draw against PBC. As a result, making the quarter finals would be a huge achievement in itself as a match versus fellow losers in round two is almost inevitable.

Rating: 4/10

Captain: Adam Aherne

Star Man: Scott Duggan

Opening Game: PBC

Predicted Finish: 2nd Round

Crescent College

Comp will be strong competitors as ever, but it looms likely that an over-reliance on certain individuals will see them fall short of the show-piece.

Rating: 7/10

Captain: John Hurley

Star Player: John Hurley

Opening Game: CBC

Predicted Finish: Quarter-Final


Glenstal have had an average season up until now, if not somewhat inconsistent. On their day they can defeat most sides but how often they are to produce the good remains to be seen.

Rating: 6/10

Captain: Caolan Dooley

Star Player: Andrew Hogan

Opening Game: Castletroy

Predicted Finish: Quarter Finals


Munchins have enjoyed a very strong start to the season,an unbeaten Limerick City Cup campaign being the highlight. However, patchy performances of late against PBC and Castletroy has lead to questioning whether the side have the required creativity to go all the way.

Rating: 7/10

Captain: Mark Crowe

Star Player: Jazz Pendijito

Opening Game: Ardscoil

Predicted Finish: Semi-Final

Rating: 8/10

Captain: Amhlaoibh Porter

Star Player: Liam Ryan

Opening Game: Clements

Predicted Finish: Champions


Rockwell come into the cup with a solid team that are quietly going about their business. This side are well capable of causing an upset in the closing weeks if the pack can get on top and allow for a creative game-plan off ten.

Rating: 7/10

Captain: Brendan Ryan

Star Player: Ryan O’Sullivan

Opening Game: Bandon

Predicted Finish: Semi-Finals
