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.
