    Bound to be at least one other prelim round or several First Round games - but no-one in Abbotstown will tell us until the LOI teams are involved (2nd Round).

    Was there a preliminary round in previous years?

    No, there wasn't.
    I think the need for a preliminary round results from the decision that the 10 PD clubs should get a bye into the 2nd round this year, as announced when the fixture list was released. So we have 10 clubs with byes into the 2nd round, as opposed to 8 in previous years.
    The problem with that is now you need to get 6 clubs from the 1st round into the 2nd, but you have 14 contenders if the qualification to the League Cup works the same as in previous years (the 10 FD clubs + the winners of the MSL, LSL and USL + Mayo League). You have to get those 14 down to 12. The preliminary round match between Midleton and Bluebell eliminates one, and either you have another prelimiary round match between the USL winner (Cockhill, I assume?) and Mayo League, or Mayo League are ditched from the competition.

    Fourteen teams = two preliminary matches leaving 12 teams, six matches in 1st Round. Simple. But what's the other Preliminary Round match? A state secret?

    Bluebell United and Cockhill Celtic are the two non-league sides in the first round draw per Bluebell's Twitter.

    They'll join the ten First Division sides in round 1, and the 6 winners will join the ten Premier sides in round 2, with a straight knock-out from there.

    But some clubs have an away game tomorrow fortnight and don't know about it yet. Bit unfair on part-timers who need time off work

    I assume Mayo League haven't been invited this year, so one team less and hence only one preliminary match.
