Eight ties were drawn in total this lunchtime.

Athlone Town have been drawn against Wexford Youths at Lissywoolen in the second round FAI Cup. 

The two sides met in the first game after the restart of the SSE Airtricity League Division One, with youths winning 3-1. 

Elsewhere, Cork City's reward for their last gasp win against Longford Town in the FAI Cup last night is a second round tie against holders Shamrock Rovers.

Rovers are at home in the only all-Premier Division tie in the round while Bohemians are the only other top-flight club with home advantage, the Gypsies will face Cabinteely.

Dundalk are away to Cobh Ramblers, UCD will host Sligo, Bray Wanderers entertain Finn Harps and Shelbourne will travel to Galway United

and Drogheda United host Derry City.

All games will be played the weekend of August 28th-30th. 

Meanwhile, the FAI has announced training can resume in Laois, Offaly and Kildare.

The association had issued a notice last Friday, ordering all activity within the three counties, in light of the localised covid restrictions.

The FAI has since sought Government guidance on the return of football activities and is now allowing the return of non-contact training in groups of 15 or less and under strict Protocol guidelines which have been made available to all affiliates.
