After another disappointing day for Munster yesterday, Munster have made several changes to their foursome pairings for the final match against Connacht.  Robin Dawson and Cathal Butler pair off in the opening match and Peter O’Keeffe and John Hickey have been paired in the second match.  Andrew McCormack and Geoff Lenehan play together in the third pairing while Munster stalwarts Pat Murray and Gary O’Flaherty team up in the back match.  Munster had a very disappointing day against Leinster yesterday.  They lost all four morning matches, and although there was a recovery in the singles they still lost that session 5-3.  Connacht drew with Ulster yesterday, meaning that the winners of Leinster and Ulster today will take the title, a draw will see Leinster retain the trophy.

Munster also had a mixed opening day at the Girls and Ladies interprovincials at Slieve Russell.  The girls team had a narrow one point win over Ulster with Cork girls Graece McGrath, Ciara Leonard and Sara Byrne contributing to Munster’s win.  The Ladies team lost out to Ulster.  Today both teams take on Leinster.
