Ahead of the draw, Chairman of the Challenge Cup Committee Gerard Lawlor said: “The Cup Final in May is an occasion that every player wants to be involved in, and I am sure that there are many players here today who have that very dream. Linfield have dominated this competition in recent seasons and will want to win it again, but other teams are queuing up to lift the Irish Cup.”
