Draw made for Irish Cup second round

The draw has been made for Round Two of the Irish Cup.

All ties are set to be played on Saturday 16 September 2023 (ko 1.30 pm).

The draw has thrown up a couple of all-Premier Intermediate League ties with Banbridge Town welcoming Moyola Park to Crystal Park while newly-promoted Rathfriland Rangers will host Ballymacash Rangers.

Greenisland, one of four sides along with Banbridge to hit eight goals at the weekend, were rewarded with a home tie against Limavady United while, of the others, Portstewart are on the road again to take on Grove United with Oxford Sunnyside receiving a home draw against Hanover.

St Mary's YC, penalty shoot-out winners after coming from two goals down after a quarter-of-an-hour at Richhill, will take on Glebe Rangers at home while Portaferry Rovers, who staged a stoppage time comeback to get past Finaghy, are away to Abbey Villa.
