The second round has the 10 first round winners plus the remaining Junior sides in Conference C and D as well as the remaining 2A AIL clubs.
Nenagh Ormond have been drawn into Round 1 where they will welcome Sundays Well to New Ormond Park, and should they win that game, they will be away to UL Bohemian in Round 2.
