Counties Cup round of 16 draw

Thursday, 8 March 2018

COUNTIES Cup holders Clara Town will be expected to qualify for the quarter-finals of this season's competition comfortably after the last 16 draw handed them a trip to Broadford to take on BBC United.
Clara Town are currently second in the Senior Division while BBC United lie fourth in Division Three.
If Birr Town manage to defeat Senior Division leaders Monksland in Athlone in their outstanding third round tie, they will welcome last year's beaten finalists, Camlin United from Longford, to Frank O'Connell Park.
Tullamore Town have still to play their third round game at Leah Victoria Park against Portlaoise Shamrocks and the reward for the winner is a trip to Athlone to take on Gentex.
Derry Rovers await the result of the Gallen United/Highfield United match while one-time winners Rosenallis will be travelling to Longford to take on Colmcille Celtic for their last 16 tie.
Finally, in a repeat of the 2016 final, Mountmellick United go to four-time winners Willow Park as they bid for a place in the last eight.
The full CCFL Combined Counties Cup round of 16 draw is as follows -
Colmcille Celtic v Rosenallis
Monksland/Birr Town v Camlin United
Towerhill Rovers v St Carthage's Athletic
Derry Rovers v Gallen United/Highfield United
