Dundalk have drawn Rosenborg inÂ the UEFA Champions League second qualifying round.
The Lilywhites made it to the Europa League group stages last season after an excitingÂ run in Europe, but will face a tough task against the Norwegian champions.
Stephen Kenny’s side are the reigning Irish champions, but are currently second in the SSE Airtricity League behind runaway leaders Cork City.
The tie will be played on 11/12 & 18/19 July, with Dundalk playing at home first before travelling to Trondheim.
Rosenborg are Norway’s most successful side with a record 24 league titles to their name, and are top this season after 14 games.
High-flyingÂ Cork City will faceÂ Estonian clubÂ Levadia Talinn in the Europa League qualifiers, in a tie which manager John Caulfield will feel is entirely winnable. The first leg will take place in Estonia before Cork welcome their opponents to Turners Cross.
AEL Larnaca (Cyprus) or Lincoln (Gibraltar) will await the Leesiders if they overcome Levadia Talinn.
Shamrock Rovers will take on Icelandic side Stjarnan, while Derry City will come up againstÂ FC Midtjylland, a Danish side who will representÂ a real test.
The first leg of all three ties will take place onÂ June 29th, with the second leg occurring a week later on July 6th.
