The draw for the next round of the FAI Intermediate Cup will take place today.
Clubs have been eagerly awaiting news on when the third round pairings would be pulled out of the hat.
There has been no public announcement by the FAI, but some clubs seem to have been informed the draw will take place this lunch time.

The FAI should be commended on finally deciding to stream the draw live, a move which keeps clubs happy, generates publicity and is good for sponsors.
However, questions have to be raised as to the lack of promotion behind the draw. Some clubs, managers and players have been scrambling around this morning to see if ‘rumours’ the draw will take place are today are true.
It seems to defeat the purpose not to announce well in advance via FAI social media and press release channels that a public draw will be made.
Regardless- the draw is on and can be viewed here from 12:45.
