Holders Dundalk FC will begin their Extra.ie FAI Cup defence away to Cobh Ramblers on August 10.

The match will have a 7pm kick-off time at St. Colman's Park and be in between legs of The Lilywhites' European third round tie.

It's one of four Saturday fixtures, with a further four on Sunday, following a hectic Friday night schedule.

Vinny Perth's team are seeking to reach a fifth successive final, having won it twice since 2015.

Tomorrow night, Dundalk face Qarabag with their Champions League dreams fully alive following last week's 1-1 draw at Oriel Park.
