Dundalk RFC have been drawn to face Athy RFC away from home in the first round of the provincial Towns Cup.

Mike Walls' men will travel to Kildare on January 4 to take on the locals, who sit sixth in Leinster League Division 2B after nine games.

Division 1A Dundalk are one place off the foot of the table after losing six of their opening nine league games.
