Official confirmation of the draw numbers. After all these years no-one at the FAI has worked out that St. is an abbreviation for Saint.

Not trying to double guess the club here, but RTE are listing the draw for 12 noon.

I don't know which is right, but better safe than sorry.

Ha, good spot oldfogey, and a real pet peeve of mine! Saint Patrick's Atheltic are before Sligo and Shamrock Rovers in alphasbetical order, even when abbreviated to St !!

Given that we're not in Europe this season I should be watching this one with baited breath, hoping for a novelty non-league away trip, but I'm out of the country for the first round, so a handy home tie and then a new non-league team that will host the game themselves in the second round please!

Certainly don't want an away game down the country on the Bank Holiday Friday!

Europe will come into play here as R2 L2 is that week, and we know Pat's will definitely be involved. Cup games involving anyone still in Europe may not get listed until after the first leg of R2.

I'd settle for that. Last 16 is going to have plenty of dross in there but all the big guns should be safely through. The Euro teams Rovers, Pats, Derry, Sligo all have handy enough games that they can play the reserves without compromising their Euro ties.
