Bohemians and Shamrock Rovers are set to face each other twice in a week after being paired in the second round of the FAI Cup in Monday’s draw.

Bohs travel to Tallaght stadium on Friday, August 20th, for their third meeting this season, before the unmissable tie of the second round at Dalymount Park.

The draw produced another derby match with Derry City visiting Finn Harps at the end of August.

Leinster senior league side St Mochta’s have a giant-killing opportunity against cup holders Dundalk at Oriel Park . The intermediate cup champions beat Crumlin United last weekend thanks to goals from Mick Daly and Gareth McCaffrey.

Marc Bircham’s Waterford could do with a cup run, and they are home to Kilnamanagh, another Dublin club, while Cork City welcome St Patrick’s Athletic to Turner’s Cross.

UCD, fresh from knocking Shelbourne out, have nother home game against Longford Town.
