For the second time in three years, Bohemians and Shamrock Rovers will meet in the opening round of fixtures in the new SSE Airtricity Premier Division season.

The Dublin rivals are set to face each other at Dalymount Park on Valentine's night - February 14th 2020.

The pair met five times last year with Keith Long's side coming out on top three times while Rovers finally ended their Bohs hoodoo - beating them for the first time in over two years at Tallaght Stadium in August.


In the other games, St. Pat's will welcome Waterford to Richmond Park.

Last year's First Division winners Shelbourne open with a trip to Cork City.

Sligo Rovers will travel to Finn Park to face Finn Harps in a north-west derby.

And Dundalk's bid for three titles in-a-row will begin with a home match against Derry City.

The full schedule for the 2020 campaign was released on Friday afternoon.

The mid-season break will take place between June 13 and June 25, and the First Division fixtures will be released at a later date.
