Second-round matches will take place on Monday, 5 May and Tuesday, 6 May with dates and kick-off times to be confirmed later.
The draw is as follows:
Pool 1: Wexford Youths v Cobh Ramblers, Cork City v Waterford United.
Pool 2: Sligo Rovers v Derry City, Galway v Finn Harps.
Pool 3: Bray Wanderers v Dundalk, Drogheda United v Shamrock Rovers.
Pool 4: Bohemians v St Patrick’s Athletic, Longford Town v Mervue United.
