The draw for the quarter-finals of the FAI Cup has thrown up the pairing of St Pat's Athletic v Shamrock Rovers.

The current league leaders will be at home against their Dublin rivals.

Assuming they get past non-league Bluebell United in their replay on Tuesday, Cup holders Derry City face the prospect a north-west derby against Sligo Rovers at The Showgrounds.

In-form Dundalk have been drawn away to Shelbourne, while Finn Harps, who defeated Cobh Ramblers 4-0 in a replay tonight, will have home advantage against Drogheda United.
