HOLDERS St Vincent's might be meeting Ballymun Kickhams in the second round of the Dublin Senior Football Championship.

If the champions can overcome Naomh Olaf in the re-arranged first round tie, the biggest match of the season will take place.

And if that happens, it will be a repeat of the 2013 final where Vincent's prevailed in a replay following two thrillers.

Paul Curran was the Ballymun boss at that stage, but now in charge are Anto McCaul, Declan Sheehan and Val Andrews.

Vincent's were due to play Olaf's last Friday night, but the fixture fell to the weather.

Tommy Conroy's Marino men are seeking to make it three county titles in succession.

Another highlight from last night's draw in Parnell Park was the pairing of Kilmacud Crokes and Ballyboden St Enda's, a huge Southside derby.

St Jude's against St Brigid's will also be a big one. Last season, Jude's beat Brigid's in the quarter-final at O'Toole Park.

Last year's runners-up, St Oliver Plunkett's/ER, will face the winners of the Raheny v Naomh Mearnóg clash.

It is hoped to play the first round rearranged games and the already set second round ties in early June.
