FAI Cup holders Dundalk have been handed a home semi-final against Derry City after the draw on RTÉ's Morning Ireland paired the two teams together.

Dundalk's hectic schedule continues apace and as well as their European fixtures, they will now face the Candystripes Sunday 2 October in the Cup.

The other semi-final sees form team Cork City travel to St Patrick's Athletic.

Cork booked their place in the draw with a 5-0 thrashing of Shamrock Rovers in Tallaght and the draw keeps alive the chances of a repeat of last season's final between the Rebels and Dundalk.

Both games will take place on that first Sunday in October and will be screened live on RTÉ Television.
