In a repeat of the First Division promotion play-off last season, Longford Town will be back at the Belfield Bowl at the end of August for the FAI Cup second round clash against UCD.

Friday August 27 is the probable date for this tricky tie against the students who scored a fine 2-0 win at home to the current First Division league leaders Shelbourne in the previous round. 

After beating UCD 3-2 in a real thriller after extra-time in the first of the 2020 promotion play-offs, Longford will be hoping to repeat that result in their quest to qualify for the FAI Cup quarter-finals. 

Shamrock Rovers will travel to Dalymount Park to face Dublin rivals Bohemians in what is unquestionably the major attraction in the second round of the FAI Cup

The draw will also see Leinster Senior League side St. Mochta's head to Oriel Park in the hope of causing a big upset against the FAI Cup holders Dundalk. Following their dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over Athlone Town, Waterford FC have been handed a home tie against Dublin non-league outfit Kilnamanagh.

Another derby tie takes place as Finn Harps welcome Derry City while Colin Healy's Cork City will play St Patrick's Athletic at Turner's Cross.

Dates and kick-off times will be confirmed in due course with all matches set to take place over the week ending Sunday, August 29. FAI Cup - Second Round Draw
