Linfield have been paired with League of Ireland outfit Cork City in a tasty all-Ireland clash in the first round of qualifying for the Europa League.

Irish League champions Crusaders will play Danish side FC Copenhagen in the second qualifying round of the Champions League next month.

Elsewhere in the Europa League, Glenavon will take on Icelandic team KR Reykavik while Cliftonville will play Differdange of Luxembourg.

The Blues last faced Cork City in the Setanta Cup in 2007, when an Aidan O'Kane strike gave Linfield victory. Previously, Linfield have played two all-Ireland clashes in Europe - with Dundalk in 1979 and Shamrock Rovers in 1984.

The Danish opponents of Crusaders are also familiar to Linfield - who defeated Copenhagen 3-0 at Windsor Park in 1993 before controversially losing 4-0 in the return leg, robbing the club of a glamour tie against AC Milan. Copenhagen faced the Crues' North Belfast rivals Cliftonville in 2008, comprehensively defeating the Reds.

Steven Baxter's team could have been the first competitive opponents for new Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, but avoided each other in the draw.

Glenavon will face KR Reykavik in their third tie with Icelandic opposition in their history. They previously lost to FH two seasons ago, but did progress in their 1995 clash against the same opposition.

Cliftonville take on FC Differdange of Luxembourg - Northern Ireland sides have won all three of their ties with opposition from the country in Europe previously. However, Differdange knocked Welsh side Bala Town out of the Europa League last season and defeated Dutch side FC Utrecht out three years ago.
