County Galway have been confirmed as Waringstown's opponents in Round Two after an investigation by Cricket Ireland's Event Technical Committee.

Galway played three Terenure registered players including overseas player Ben Speake in their win over Fox Lodge, but with the Leinster side having withdrawn from the competition without playing a match, they were cleared to play for Galway.

A statement on the Cricket Ireland website stated:

The Competitionís Event Technical Committee (ETC) have investigated the matter and accept that the Eligibilty Regulations, as they currently stand, are open to interpretation. 

The ETC also found that the regulations are intended to restrict any player within the Irish Senior Cup or National Trophy to playing for one club only in any season.

 The ETC have therefore decided that the result stands, and Co Galway will now play Waringstown CC in the second round of the Irish Senior Cup.

The ETC have also asked for the regulations of the ISC to be clarified with immediate effect, and these will be circulated to clubs as soon as possible.

In the interim all clubs still involved in the Irish Senior Cup and National Cup should note that no player can play for 2 different clubs in either of these Cricket Ireland competitions. Any club found to be in breach of this regulation will be expelled from the relevant competition.

The venue for the Galway v Waringstown match is still tbc. Galway only have an artificial pitch so will either have to source a ground or reverse the fixture to the Lawn.
