Champions CIYMS will start the defence of their Robinson Services Premier League crown with an away day trip to Stormont to face CSNI.

Carrickfergus entertain North Down in another mouth-watering clash, while Waringstown face Instonians and newly promoted Woodvale have home advantage over Lisburn.

The Gallagher Challenge Cup first round is on May 9, and the draw will take place this week at Malone.

Waringstown and CIYMS face off on May 23rd when the other sides are in Irish Cup action.

There are two blank dates in June, with the T20 interpro festival at North Down meaning no games on the 13th, while Ireland's ODI against New Zealand at Stormont on the 27th means another blank date.

The season is due to close on August 29th.
