Galway United to host Bohemians in FAI Cup semi-final
Galway United will host Bohemians in the semi-finals of the Sports Direct FAI Cup, while Cork City will welcome St Patrick's Athletic to Turner's Cross in the other tie.
First Division Galway could wrap up the title this Friday night and will then look forward to facing Bohs in Eamonn Deacy Park, having already knocked out two Premier Division sides so far in the competition.
Cork have struggled in the league this year but have the chance for a final berth when they take on 2021 winners Pat’s.
It’s possible the final could be a repeat of that decider when the Saints emerged on penalties, while there is also the opportunity for Galway boss John Caulfield to meet his former club Cork at the Aviva Stadium.
The draw for the Women’s FAI Cup threw up a blockbuster pairing with Shamrock Rovers at home to Shelbourne.
The duo are currently coming up short in the title race as Shels look to defend the trophy they won last year.
The Hoops are seeking a first win for the female side having won the men’s competition 25 times.
Sligo Rovers and Athlone Town recorded big upset victories in the quarter-finals and will face off for a place in the decider.
Sligo will have home advantage against Ciaran Kilduff’s side.
Town lost to Shels in last year's final with a chance of a rematch very much alive.
FAI Cup semi-final draws:
Sligo Rovers v Athlone Town
Shamrock Rovers v Shelbourne
Cork City v St Patrick’s Athletic
Galway United v Bohemians
