Dundalk FC will host UCD in the semi-finals of the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup following tonight's draw on Soccer Republic.

The Lilywhites were drawn out of the pot first as they avoided a pairing with Cork City, leaving open the possibility of the teams meeting in the decider for the fourth year in succession.

The winner of the Derry City/Bohemians quarter-final will oppose holders Cork in the other last four tie.

Dundalk's former UCD contingent includes Robbie Benson and Georgie Kelly, the latter remains the Students' top-scorer this term and registered the fourth goal in his new side's quarter-final cruise against Limerick on Friday night.

The match will go ahead on the weekend of September 30.
