Dundalk FC will travel to Richmond Park for the fourth time this season on Monday week, September 3, for their Leinster Senior Cup semi-final against St. Patrick's Athletic.

Kick-off in Inchicore is down for 7:45pm and the winner will face Shelbourne in the decider.

It will be the club's sixth match in just 17 days, with games against Finn Harps, Shamrock Rovers and Limerick FC to take place between Friday night and then.

Should the Lilywhites prevail, it would be the second successive year that themselves and Shels will meet in the competition's final. Owen Heary's men are the holders having won 3-1 at Oriel Park last autumn.

Dundalk went three points clear at the top of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division table last night thanks to a 2-0 win over Sligo Rovers.

Stephen Kenny's side last won the Leinster Senior Cup in 2015.
