Home Farm, who received a bye to the first round, will face John Caulfield's side as they begin the defence of their FAI Senior Cup and look to win the trophy in three consecutive seasons. The last club to achieve that feat was Shamrock Rovers in 1987.

SSE Airtricity League Premier Division side Waterford will travel to Skerries Town with all fixtures set to be played on the week-ending August 12.

With cup sponsors, the Irish Daily Mail, set to award a €2000 prize fund to the last non-league club left in the competition, there was two all non-league ties with Dublin Bus set to host CIE Ranch and Leeds set to travel to Maynooth University Town.

The Irish Daily Mail are also doing a special FAI Senior Cup Final ticket give-away tomorrow (Thursday, July 5) where every reader of the paper can claim a FREE ticket for the final at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday, November 4.
