The only non-league team left in this year’s FAI Cup have been drawn against the competition’s most successful team.

Bluebell Utd will face Shamrock Rovers in next month’s quarter-final, following Monday evening’s draw.

Rovers, 24-time winners of the Cup, are in pursuit of their first triumph since 1987. Bluebell shocked First Division Cabinteely at Stradbrook over the weekend, with former Republic of Ireland midfielder Keith Fahey lining out for them 12 months after hanging up his professional boots.

Meanwhile Dundalk face local rivals Drogheda, while holders Cork City have been drawn against Longford Town.

In the fourth quarter-final Galway host Limerick. All four games will take place on the weekend of September 10th.
