Written 4 months ago by Will O'Callaghan


Edenderry Town have been handed a home draw in the first qualifying round of the Daily Mail FAI Cup.

The Leinster Senior League side will host Cork’s Cobh Wanderers on last weekend of April.

Edenderry played League of Ireland side Derry City in the second round of the competition in 2015.

The Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup Qualifying Round draw is as follows:-

Greystones United v Sheriff YC
Ballymun United v Killester United
Killarney Celtic v Boyle Celtic
Edenderry Town v Cobh Wanderers
Bangor Celtic v Cherry Orchard
Everton v Liffey Wanderers
Evergreen v St. Marys
College Corinthians v Ballincollig

*All ties will be played on the week ending April 30th.

Ahead of the draw, FAI Cup Sponsors Irish Daily Mail announced details of a 2000 euro prize fund to be awarded to the last non-league club left in the competition as the Irish Daily Mail continue their sponsorship for the 2017 season.

The prize fund can be used towards the cost of equipment for the winning club and Irish Daily Mail Circulation Manager David Vaz hopes the prize fund benefits non-league football.

He said: “The non-league clubs work extremely hard all season to play top level football against the best teams in the country.

“We hope this bursary will help in some way towards the high costs of running an amateur club.”
