JUNIOR club Sheriff YC have been rewarded for reaching the FAI Ford Cup fourth round with a local derby at home to Shelbourne.

The AUL club defeated First Division side Salthill Devon to claim a place in the last 16, but they will have to wait for their big day with the next round scheduled for the weekend of August 26-28.

Holders Sligo Rovers will welcome Roddy Collins' Monaghan United to the Showgrounds, while finalists Shamrock Rovers will host UCD -- who they beat 6-1 last Friday -- in Tallaght. Longford Town will welcome Bohemians to Flancare Park in a repeat of the 2001 final, while there will be a Louth derby to look forward to for Drogheda United and Dundalk.

Wexford Youths' reward for beating Derry City is a home game against Cork City, while St Patrick's Athletic face a tricky trip to Waterford United and Bray Wanderers will host Limerick.

Fourth-round draw: Shamrock Rovers v UCD; Waterford United v St Patrick's Athletic; Bray Wanderers v Limerick FC; Longford Town v Bohemians; Wexford Youths v Cork City; Sligo Rovers v Monaghan United; Sheriff YC v Shelbourne; Drogheda United v Dundalk.

Ties to be played the weekend of August 26-28.
