Tough draws for City and Ramblers in the FAI Cup
The FAI Cup second round draw has been made, and it hasn't been particularly kind to either Cork club.
Cork City have been drawn away to Premier Division leaders Shamrock Rovers
Cobh Ramblers meanwhile will host Dundalk, Ramblers of course famously beating the Lillywhites 1-0 in the EA Sports Cup semi final two years ago, thanks to this goal from Chris Hull.
