    They play in Buncrana, at their own ground just north of the centre of town. They'll likely move the match to Maginn Park, as they did for a LC game against Sligo a few years back.
    They won the USL last season, and aren't a bad side at all. In saying that, Limerick will be comfortable enough against them.

    I once played in goal (at underage) for Cockhill against Muff. Can't see what else you would possibly need to know.

    They played at their own ground against Longford a few years ago BTW, should be able to host Limerick there no bother rather than move it to Maginn.

    Seeing as they knocked us out last season I'm not sure what the upset result here would be

    Was Duffer doing the draw?

    I know it'd be hard for him to rig it, but really seems like a needless conflict of interest to introduce

    I'm hoping that's a joke

    We played them on their own patch in 2015, ultra physical side who were extremely unlucky not to get something against us that day. Only for some Kevin O’Connor magic we’d have been finished.

    Not really.

    People directly involved in the Cup draw shouldn't be making the Cup draw.

    it's a very minor issue, but it shows that the FAI are more concerned with a bit of celebrity than doing things properly.

    To be fair who could they get to do the draw that wouldn't have an interest in the outcome that has some involvement in Irish football?
    If it was Brian Kerr id be saying biased for Pats if it was Colin Healy I'd be saying bias for Cork, if it was a random LOI referee I'd be saying Anti Rovers bias and just because I know I'm paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get me

    Martin O'Neill did it before. Fran Gavin. One of the RTE pundits. There's lots of options.

    Like, in the list of things wrong with the league, it's down around the level of grounds selling Fanta instead of Club. But still. Imagine Gareth Southgate doing the World Cup draw. It wouldn't happen. And he wouldn't really be able to take advantage either.

    Or Falcao doing the Europa League draw while playing for Atletico when they were in it, that would never happen... Oh wait

    Duff doing this draw would be like the england under 15s manager doing the world cup draw not Southgate.

    Can be up and down. Watched their league decider with Letterkenny Rovers couple of weeks back. They had a storming lead at the top of the Ulster Senior League around March but started throwing it away slowly. Letterkenny caught up and forced a league playoff, but Cockhill won it pretty easy.

    They've some good pedigree there, Gavin Cullen or Lee McCarron will be in goal, both have League of Ireland experience. Laurence Toland in midfield is a player that should have been playing LOI this past ten years but never made the step up, Malachy McDermott in there as well is another who could have made the step up. Peter Doherty at centre back was approached by Ollie Horgan before this season and didn't want to make the commitment to LOI football and they have others in there who could have a crack at senior football if they wanted too.

    They'll give Limerick a game, that's for sure. If they keep it at Charlie O'Donnell grounds, rather than Maginn Park, it'll give them a little more advantage too. Limerick will hate the tiny little dressing rooms there. Should make for an interesting game, and certainly a potential upset if Limerick aren't at their game.

    That's crazy. Hope it's a mistake. Maynooth Uni have a lovely grass pitch right next to the astro.
