The draw for the first round of this season's FAI Cup has been made with just three ties down for decision. 

The competition will have a different look to it because of the COVID-19 pandemic so there will be non-league clubs competing this year.

Last year's beaten finalists Dundalk have been drawn at home to Waterford in a game that will see Lilywhites assistant Alan Reynolds go up against his former club.

John Sheridan was appointed as Reynolds replacement at Waterford.

Cork City manager Neale Fenn will go up against his former club Longford Town at Turners Cross and the other tie will be the all-Premier Division meeting of Finn Harps and St. Patrick's Athletic.

First-round draw:

Finn Harps v St Patrick's Athletic
Dundalk v Waterford
Cork City v Longford

Holders Shamrock Rovers are one of 13 clubs to receive a bye into the second round.

Derry City, Cabinteely, Shelbourne, Bray Wanderers, Sligo Rovers, Wexford FC, Athlone Town, UCD, Galway United, Cobh Ramblers, Bohemians and Drogheda United have also been handed byes to the next round.
