Bank of Ireland’s partnership with Munster Rugby extends beyond the senior team, as it does in Leinster, and the draw for the Munster Senior Challenge Cup was held last week in the bank’s Patrick Street branch in Cork City centre.
“We are delighted to sponsor the 2017/18 Bank of Ireland Munster Senior Cup,” said Bank of Ireland Provincial director Liam Sheedy.Bank of Ireland has a strong presence in Munster and we are committed to supporting communities across the country. Earlier this year we announced an extension to our partnership with Munster Rugby and this will see the relationship extend into its 25th year up to 2023.

“Through our sponsorships, we not only support the professional squad but also enhance the development of rugby at a grassroots level.”
“The club game is the lifeblood of rugby in the province and Bank of Ireland, with 72 branches in Munster, is pleased to be connected with the values and traditions that the clubs represent.”
“We look forward to another competitive year and exciting competition and would like to wish all Senior Clubs involved every success in the upcoming season.”
“Munster Rugby are delighted to be associated with Bank of Ireland,” added Munster Branch President Charlie Buckley.
“It is great to see them involved in the bed rock of rugby, the clubs”.
The draw produced plenty of exciting games with Cork Constitution, who will be looking to defend their title and win the trophy for the sixth successive year, facing Shannon at Coonagh in the opening round, while last season’s runners up Young Munster will host Highfield in Tom Clifford Park.
Bank of Ireland and Munster Rugby are among the more than 220 organisations that play an active part of the Sport for Business community.
