The Open Senior Cup competition dates back 87 years to 1935 and was initially played for by eight clubs - Leinster, Civil Service, Clontarf, Merrion, Dublin University, Pembroke, Phoenix and YMCA.
The competition has been played in various formats over the decades. The 2023 iteration will be played as a white-ball (coloured kit) knock-out competition. Dublin University will re-enter the competition in 2023 having last won the Senior Cup trophy in 1963 (as the third year of a treble success in the competition).
