    It was supposed to have been done last night (Thursday 26th), but due to the unfortunate tragedy of John Sherlock it has been put down for next thursday 2nd September, and this year with an added twist from what I hear

    Take it the draw is on tonight?
    Now to start speculating, a) are 'b' and reserve teams allowed enter this year? b) top division teams enter in round 1? c) 2 legged ties?
    d) none of the above?

    Draw For 1st Round

    http://inform.fai.ie/League/Clubs/po...w20102011.aspx

    you will find the draw here

    Also Note

    Connacht Junior Cup & Shield
    The Connacht Junior Cup commences with the 1st Round on 26th September, the second round is fixed for the 17th October with the 3rd Round on 28th November. The Super League Clubs enter the competition at the 3rd Round stage.

    For the first time the C.F.A. are introducing a Shield competition for teams knocked out on the 1st Round, subsequent rounds of the shield competition will be played on the same day as the cup competition rounds. The final of the shield competition will precede the cup competition final next April.It was decided at the last meeting of the Connacht Junior Committee that all cup and shield matches will be played on Sunday's, the only exception to this is where 2 Clubs agree to play on Saturday following consultation with the local Fixtures Secretary.

    Heard a few rumblings that clubs would fancy their chances in the Shield competition and not care about progression from the 1st round. Could this mean that teams underpreform in order to increase their chances of picking up some silverware as opposed to giving their all in the 1st round. Would it not be better for all clubs to enter at this stage if this was to become a trend? Or will this shield prove to be a complete farce if teams opt to concentrate on having a big day out with the the Connaught cup proper finalists. Because lets be fair it would be more appealing to get to the Shield final than come up against a SL team in R3 and be knocked out at that stage???

    Valid point Back n the Game, there are 36 first round games, which mean that there'll only be 36 teams in the shield. I'd imagine 28 teams will get a bye to the round of the last 32 and the remaining 8 teams will play a preliminary round.

    If you lose in the 1st round of the cup and manage to dodge the preliminary round 3 wins will get you to the Shield semis.

    A few years back my club won 4 games and got Castlebar(pre going LOI 'A'), got hockeyed and never had a chance. but if you were to win 3/4 games in the Shield you are looking at a semi or possibly a final.

    Can see a lot of the better div 1 clubs trying that route alright, 4/5 wins against non SL teams and you have a Connacht Trophy to parade around your area.

    Would make more sense to have all the teams in an open draw for 1st on Connacht Cup, losers go into the Shield, that way some of the weaker SL teams could have a chance in the Shield too(thats the way the under age Conn cups are ran)

    Yes very good point maybe a solution for next season would be the Round 1 loosers would play each others with the winners playing Round 2 loosers and then the winners would play the Round 3 loosers, i know it would mean an extra round in the shield but it would mean the shield wiuld be more competative.

    Dont think that would be the answer as the whole concept for the shield is to give weaker sides in Connaught a chance to win a connaught title for want of a better word. If you had all the SL sides in from the start like the FAI junior cup then the chance of some of them getting knocked out earlier would encourage every other team to keep interest in the main competition. I just think it should be an open competition from the start

    But if it was an open competation from the start what would stop say a no of the top teams meeting each other in the first round, example last year finalists so you could have some very strong teams in the shield.
