Gary Deegan, Aaron Dobbs, Karl Sheppard, Jack Brady and Daniel O’Reilly have all arrived through the doors at Tolka Park in recent months.

They will then play Athlone Town on January 17 at 7.45pm, with a venue TBC.

After facing the Blue and Black of the Midlands, they will make the trip to Galway to face Alan Murphy’s highly-fancied side on January 25.

On January 31st, they will then face Dublin rivals and old First Division adversaries Cabinteely at 7.30pm. Venue will be confirmed at a later date.

And to round off their top-flight preparations, the Reds will then face Bray Wanderers at Tolka Park on Friday February 7th at 7.45pm.
