Their adversaries from last year's final, Athlone IT, will also face a tough test of their credentials to reach the final again as they travel to the Rebel county to face Division One side Cork IT.

The most successful side in the competition in this decade, IT Carlow, are also at risk of an early exit as they have to travel to Letterkenny to take on Shane Byrne's side.

There will be a new name on this year's Bob Eustace Cup after back-to-back winners Dublin Business School were promoted to Division Two and the Challenge Cup.

With the absence of DBS, the back-to-back Eustace Shield holders, IADT Dun Laoghaire may fancy their chances of a run at the cup as they have a favourable home tie with GMIT Mayo.
