Therefore, the Boys in Green will face Michael O'Neill's Northern Ireland four days before their final Nations League fixture, away to Denmark on November 19th.
The jury is still out on that tournament but the Carling Nations Cup has always been consigned to history.
It will be the first time that the two teams from the island will have played each other since the Carling Nations Cup clash in 2011, in which Giovanni Trapattoni's Ireland enjoyed a comprehensive 5-0 victory.
We're challenging you to name the Irish starting 11 from that day.
That competition has taken the place of numerous friendly dates that were previously available but with Ireland playing in League B in a group with Denmark and Wales, it left two free dates for non-competitive games.
Northern Ireland host Austria at Windsor Park on Sunday 18 November, while the Republic of Ireland face Denmark on 19 November.
"UEFA have made it mandatory that we play a friendly on that date and when we looked at the options across Europe, travelling to Dublin to play the Republic of Ireland made a lot of sense", said O'Neill. The results from the competitive ties between the countries, which have all been in European Championship qualifiers, include the most recent 2015 match which ended with a 2-1 win for Poland in Warsaw along with three draws; a 1-1 draw in Dublin in 2014, and 3-3 in Poznan and 0-0 in Dublin which both took place in 1991.
"From a personal point of view I am looking forward to managing a team against Martin, a manager who I hugely respect and admire".
