DkIT will travel to face Trinity College Dublin in the preliminary round of the 2018 Sigerson Cup.

The reward for Óisín McConville's men if they get through would be a home second round tie with one of the competition favourites, DCU, who boast Mayo star Diarmuid O'Connor among their many high-profile players.

Following two successive Trench Cup triumphs, this will be DkIT's first involvement in the Higher Education's most coveted football competition since 2009.
